Join us for Family Hack Jam 3 on Monday, February 17th 2014 @ Communitech!
Family Hack Jam is a day for parents and kids, ages 8+, to learn about digital media and technology where you can explore, create and share! This is a parent and child event - children are not allowed to participate unattended.
This event is being held at Communitech at 151 Charles in the Tannery Building
This is a free event. If you like, you can buy a "donation" ticket, which lets you choose any amount. We appreciate your support and invite you to make the contribution that's right for you and your family.
We are providing a lovely bagged lunch from Little Mushroon Catering!
As we look forward to sharing food with each other, we invite you to bring a donation for the Food Bank to Family Hack Jam for us to share some food with our community.
Please Bring Your Own Computer - we will have some computers available, but this is a BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) event.
