Please join us for the January Tech Social! The theme is "Disassembly". Similar to previous Tech Socials, the event will include social time, pizza dinner, a short TEDx-like talk, and self-organizing pods with topics such as Minecraft, board games, wearables, and any other topics you would like to share! The fee is $5 (which covers equipment and refreshments) and you can of course donate more to support this effort!

Because the theme is "Disassembly", we are asking attendees to bring devices, appliances, toys, etc. for disassembly. Note: re-assembly is unlikely. Also bring eye protection, just in case! Dr. Ayyana Chakravartula will be speaking about her work analyzing product and device failures. We have also invited the Fixit Clinic to join us! Please contact the organizers with questions. There will be wireless access.

Bring in your January Tech Bag:

- Devices for disassembly

- Tools (screwdrivers, etc.)

- Protective gear (eyewear, gloves)

Piedmont Tech Social is sponsored by Piedmont Makers, an APCP group dedicated to support STEAM education in the district.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

No, this is for all ages. This is not a drop-off event - please have an adult loosely associated with any minor planning to attend.

What is the meal going to be?

Dinner will be pizza from Lanesplitter, with water and milk also provided. If you want to bring your own water bottle, so much the better. There will be a cookie break during the self-organizing pod session.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can email the organizers at ayyanac@hotmail.com, dionlim@gmail.com or noelle.fillippenko@gmail.com. Also consider joining our Facebook group: Piedmont Tech Social!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

As long as you pre-register before 3p the day of the event, there is no need. If you register later, please consider printing your ticket or having a copy on your phone..

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.
