This two-day event of learning and making is open to high school students throughout the region, and powered with the help of community sponsors, mentors, and volunteers. Participants enjoy a one-day learnathon followed by a day of making. Each participant will have the opportunity to choose two workshops during the "learnathon," presented by volunteers and mentors in the local community. On the second day, all participants will work in groups to create and present solutions to problem statements brought by local organizations. A Demo Party on the evening of Jan. 27 will be open to the public, during which all groups will present their ideas and prototypes.
