    ChickTech Mid-Summer Picnic

    Join ChickTech at our annual Mid-Summer Picnic!

    Meet and mingle with HS participants, ChickTech volunteers, and women and men passionate about getting more girls and women into tech. Families (including children) are welcome. Please make sure each person is counted in your registration so we have an accurate count.


    We'll have catered food from Smokehouse 21 and Homegrown Smokers Vegan BBQ to provide delicious omnivore and vegan/vegetarian-friendly BBQ options.

    Learn to solder

    We will have a few soldering stations set up where anyone can learn to solder (or teach others to solder!). Soldering is a fun and useful skill, and you will love it!

    Create an e-textile

    You will have the opportunity to create 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/).

    Play with legos

    We'll also bring a bunch of legos for everyone to play with because, really, everyone loves legos.

    This is going to be a really fun event! We're excited, and we hope you'll join us to celebrate summer, tasty food, and of course women in tech. :)

    This is a free event, but please consider making 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.
