Join ChickTech at our annual Mid-Summer Picnic! Families (including children) are welcome. Please make sure each person is counted in your registration so we have an accurate count!

Other than eating free food, we'll have two fun activities. The first will be a soldering station, where anyone can learn to solder (or teach others to solder!). The second will be an activity creating a simple e-textile project (using fabric or felt to create an item that uses a small battery, sensors, and lights/sounds to react to the sensors--here are some more complex examples: http://makezine.com/2010/04/06/geek-chic-massive-e-textiles-roundu/). This is going to be a really fun event! We're excited, and we hope you'll join us to celebrate a summer that is starting any day now, tasty food, and of course women in tech. :)

This is a free event, but please feel free to make a donation to help defray our costs if you are able. All donations are tax-deductible and help keep our K-12 activities free to participants.

Food will be provided. Transportation will be provided as needed to HS participants, either through transit passes or pickup.
