Teachers and Techies - 4.0 Schools' first ever lab lunch

If you don't know 4.0, we're a design lab dedicated to better education located in the IP building - 643 Mag. We need your help updating our lab and planning some new events for this fall!

So we're doing our first ever Brainstorming Lunch
Thurs, June 7, 12-1 PM. 643 Mag, #206.
http://40lablunch.eventbrite.com

We'll kick around ideas like:
-The Coder couch - reserving our orange couch for any coder to come take a nap. Generous coders give us free advice on a 1:1 nap:advice basis.

-Teacher/coder speed dating - we get teachers and coders together to a. meet each other and b. have teachers share pain points in education that coders and others might see as new business opportunities

-Lock-ins - the two above ideas brought together to either create the biggest breakthrough ever in ed tech or get 4.0 shut down forever

-4.0 Lab tech - what should we install in the lab to make it an awesome place to livestream or capture a Skillshare class.

And we'll ask you for your take on new ways to:
-make the 4.0 Lab a place where folks can be creative and productive,

-make the 4.0 Lab a place hackers, coders, and others feel welcome and at home, and

-improve the dialog between teachers, techies, chefs and creatives in New Orleans.

Lunch on us for the first 10. Come on over even if you don't want food.

    Thanks to everyone who showed up today. Awesome suggestions - some photos of my faves. Join us at 4.0 Schools on June 14 at 7:00 PM at 643 Magazine Street Suite 206.
    We are bringing a diverse group together to meet one another and chat. We've got entrepreneurs. We've got artists. We've got business leaders. And we've got you. We aren't going to over-plan the event. We set up the chairs. We make introductions. We crack the beers.
