We are all about bringing the next generation of technology to our community. So we are excited to offer the following Geekend events and exhibits that will be open to the public on Saturday January 28th from 11:45 to 2 PM at The Guild Hall Campus.
Come see several uses of Gulfstream’s Immersive Realities Technologies (that’s AR/VR for short!)
This is THE showcase of kids creating not just consuming technology. Drop in to check out student coded video games, cast a vote for your favorite, and learn about the possibilities of coding.
This event, and the 3D modeling workshop before it, and the session with Chris Kelsey following it, are free and open to the public. If you are bringing children, please plan on staying with them for the duration of the event.
This free and open-to-the public session will teach students the basics of 3D modeling, starting with Geekend’s favorite 3D model, the Geekbot! After the session students will have a file they can take to a 3D printer to make their model come to life. If you are bringing children, please plan on staying with them for the duration of the event. Thanks to Shipt for the snacks.
