    Dorine, the kids loved Saturdays workshop. I've signed them up for the one in February. I see there is one in Hythe which is much closer to us. But how do I sign up for that particular location?

    January 20, 2014

    • Dorine F.

      Ive added you to the Hythe hub, did you get the notification?

      February 4, 2014

  • Steve H.

    Sadly it's looking as though I won't be able to afford the time to attend this now so I've changed my RSVP to "no" so that I'm not blocking anyone else from going.

    February 6, 2014

  • Salud & Kevin M.

    Hi Dorine, I'd like to sign Michael up for the Hythe meeting if that's ok? He'll be with his friends then too. Would that be okay? I'm not sure how to book? Thanks, Salud

    Hi - not sure if I have joined this or not? Interested in the Winter Gardens, Geek event for age 8+ please for my son?

    1 · February 3, 2014

    • Claire S.

      Oh wow thanks will have a very happy lad - what are the timings for the Margate one please and do parents stay, lad is 10years old in yr6 at school.

      February 3, 2014

    • Dorine F.

      10am for a 10:30 start. Its a drop and go, else if you want to stay you will need to do the training as a webmaker mentor, its free but we do get you to do some work volunteering. No experience needed just a willingness to try things the geeky way :) we have a couple dates left before the 17th Feb.

      February 3, 2014

  • Tania G.

    Sorry, I forgot to say -thanks for organising the event and your mum's sushi was great.

    Friends and makers, I need your help!
    We need additional maker mentors as Facilitators (Problem solvers), Coders (Any language) and Helpers (Especially on the 19th about 120 people coming!), for 1, 2 or 3 day in one of 6 locations:
    FEB 17th - 18th workshop days @ Canterbury (Simon Langton boys), Hersden (ionCube and Spires school) Margate (Marine Studio co-working@GEEK), Maidstone (Union23 co-working), Folkestone (Holiday Extra) and Ramsgate (Lego club)
    FEB 19th Mentor Judges day "Show and tell" @GEEK Margate - RECOMMEND A JUDGE? email me
    I've organised a Mentor training day 25th Jan http://www.meetup.com/EPIK-UK/events/159576922 to help you work with youths ELSE if you already feel confident just email me to take part at the maker party without the need to train.
    This is ideal for parents taking their kids to the maker party who want to take part themselves, please feel free to invite friends, relatives or co-workers and their children to take part, this is a Geeky family party!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
