Being a parent is tough. Being a parent in NYC is really tough. But being a geek parent in NYC can be amazingly fun.

This group is for geeks who are parents, as well as parents whose kids are natural born geeks. Let's meet and discuss the fascinating challenges of raising kids with a focus on science and smarts, and do some of the cool geeky things available about town.

We (the organizers) have a six month old son, so we'll try to plan events centered around small children, but please feel free to join and create events for older kids. Besides, all geeks are just curious kids in grownup bodies!
