    You are welcome to meet at Palisades Charter High School if you like. We've just finished converting an ex-industrial arts classroom into a makerspace, the Pali STEAM Shop, for our MESA and robotics classes. 1200 sq ft, wifi, and seating for 40 folks wiling to brave high school flashbacks :)

    Unfortunately I'm producing another event at the YouTube studios all day on the 16th, running until 8PM. I can offer potential locations for future gatherings....we'd love to share more of our tools in development at the hackathon or privately with our teams at GrowGames and EDDEFY.

      Hey Evonne, if Youtube wants to host this event, we would be more than happy to come to you. StartupWeekend is a not for profit organization backed by Google, while their EDU focused StartupWeekend's are sponsored by the Gates Foundation. Please let us know
