Event Details

We are excited to announce the first Tech Social of the 2015-2016 school year! The theme is Graphic Design and On Demand Printing.  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!  

 

Our activity is to play around with design and themes for Piedmont Makers T-shirts!  

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

FAQs

 

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 attendee under the age of 13..


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 organizers with any questions?

You can email the organizers at techsocial@piedmontmakers.org. Also consider joining the Piedmont Makers Facebook group!


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.
