SCaLE7x: A Conference for FamiliesTue, Jan 27, 2009
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|
|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|
|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?
