Portland Code School Tree Lighting Ceremony (and open house)
Burnside Digital Office

Come and check out the PCS classroom, meet some new folks, drink some nog, play some board/card/dice games, and be witness to the first ever PCS tree lighting ceremony!

Admittedly, the 'ceremony' aspect of things will be a bit thin... but the other festivities will make up for it :)

We will have nog and beer. Feel free to bring your own drinks/food, or bring some to share. Mostly, you can expect to just hang out, play some games, and learn more about PCS informally.

Yuri's Night Party with PSAS
Portland State University Engineering Building

The Portland State Aerospace Society (PSAS), a student aerospace group at Portland State University with decades of experience in high-powered amateur rocketry, is hosting a Yuri’s Night Party, in honor of the international space holiday.

Fifty-five years ago, Yuri Gagarin was the first person to travel into space when his spacecraft completed one full orbit about the Earth on April 12, 1961. In honor of his great accomplishment, parties are held worldwide every year to celebrate humanity’s progress in space.

As part of this international celebration, PSAS is hosting a “space race” with challenges and games, technology displays from local rocketry and space groups, engineering labs open to visitors, and food and beverages provided. We will also be screening the film First Orbit, a reconstruction of what Yuri would have seen on his journey.

The event will be held on April 12 from 6:30-9:30 in the Engineering Building of PSU (1930 SW 4th Ave Portland, OR 97201, at the intersection of SW 4th and College). All ages are welcome; there is a recommended $10 donation per person at the door.

Please join us as we celebrate the past, present, and future of space travel!
