Event description

Description

The theme is Coding. For this tech social, there will be three areas:

  1. Parents who want to help their kids learn to code

  2. Kids who want to code

  3. Hour of Code hands-on help

We will start with pizza and a short talk. After the talk, attendees can go to their areas of interest, or work on anything else! The fee is $5 (which covers equipment and refreshments) and we of course accept donations to further support this effort! As usual, you are welcome to bring any games and maker activities - you do not have to stick with the theme. Featured speakers include Terry Smith, Meher Gourjian, Patrick Collins and Nathan Mattix.

Please contact the organizers with questions. Registration in advance is strongly advised to allow for us to order enough food!

No, this is for all ages. This is not a drop-off event - please have an adult loosely associated with any attendee under the age of 13..

What is the refund policy?

We understand that plans change, particularly with families! However, the majority of our costs are sunk immediately (facility and equipment rental), so while we are happy to refund your fee up to 24 hrs in advance of the event, please consider making it a donation instead.
