Family-friendly Activities at BarCamp

Hey, Portland techie parents!  Want to come to BarCamp but wondering how to include your kids? We have good news for you. We’ll be running a couple of family-oriented sessions during the unconference. The agenda will be pretty loose, but here are some of the activities you and your children might do, depending on equipment availability and repair:

  • Program an Arduino-based robot together using an easy graphical language.
  • Record a song together.
  • Build interactive cartoons with friendly programs like Scratch or Alice.
  • Play a silly physics-based game like Numpty Physics
  • Anything else you want to bring along and share

Bring your enthusiasm (and a laptop if you’ve got one).  We can’t wait to see you and your families at BarCamp! Don’t forget to RSVP if you haven’t already.
