SCaLE7x: A Conference for Families

Here’s a conversation I had regarding SCaLE’s policy toward bringing children.

So this brings to my mind.  What can we do to entertain children at a booth besides the OLPCs?

herlo I asked a couple days back about kids at scale and pricing or whatever.  I forgot to take #scale-chat of ignore, what is the rules on children? 13:49
Gareth Kids are definitely allowed to attend. 13:49
herlo sure, and I think it's encouraged no? 13:50
Gareth We generally dont charge for them if they're under 16 or so. 13:50
Gareth Definitely! 13:50
herlo cool, that's what I was after 13:50
Gareth We had quite a few last year….they all seemed to have a good time. 13:50
herlo the Fedorans will be sporting a few young'ns around is all 13:50
Gareth Good to hear! 13:50
lcafiero +1 Gareth 13:50
herlo yeah, we have the wii lined up to be used all day if they get bored 13:50
herlo I'm sure we'll have other activities for them.  I plan on bringing scissors and some fedora media boxes for them to build 13:52
lcafiero Orv_work may want to do something with this, press-wise. Some of the other events – especially Linux World – are kid unfriendly, and it doesn't allow those of us with kids to attend. 13:52
herlo maybe we should also bring some skulladay.com pages too, that'll entertain them 13:52
Gareth yeah. he wrote something up last year too…I'm sure he'll write something up this year. 13:52
herlo we'll watch for it 13:53

I think that it’d be fun to have kids come around and make stuff at our booth.  There are tons of good things on make.com and other places for kids.

What do you guys think?
