Friday, June 13, 2014, 12PM: Missile Silo Tour! Do something different! Take a tour of a Cold War Atlas E nuclear missile site. It is FREE. Tours take about 30-45 minutes and you’ll experience history which most haven’t. The former nuclear warhead equipped Atlas E site was constructed in 1961. The host military base for the Atlas E program’s command and control was located at Francis E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming. There were a total of four Atlas E sites in Weld County. This particular missile site was deactivated in 1965 and was turned over to Weld County. Tours include walking through the missile bay, generator room, crew quarters and the command center of the once active missile site. The Civil Defense section is available to demonstrate how the site was once equipped as a fall-out shelter during the Cold War.

Please arrive 10 min early as our host doesn’t get paid for what we go over.

Those who would be able to carry a few extra people and those interested in riding with someone else, please meet at denhac between 10:00 and 10:45. We will want to leave between 10:50 and 11:00. RSVP on Meet Up!

Sunday, June 15, 2014, 11AM: Kids’ Science Dojo! Kids’ Science Dojo at Denhac is a weekly science class designed for elementary through high school-aged kids. Students will be learning science topics through cooperative projects, lectures, and safe experiments. Attendees under the age of 13 are required to be accompanied by a designated guardian.

To help make a good class for both kids and their guardians as well as determining a good day and time for the class, our wonderful member and host Ashleigh has set up a couple of surveys. I encourage everyone who is considering the class at least read the description at the top of the Parents survey to give you information about Ashleigh and the class.

Sunday, June 15, 2014, 12PM: Kids’ Coder Dojo! The Kids’ Coder Dojo at Denhac is a weekly computer programming class designed for elementary through high school-aged kids. Students will begin by using a free and open source visual programming language called Scratch (http://scratch.mit.edu/, available on Windows, MacOSX and Linux), and will be able to move on to more advanced languages as they progress at their own pace.

Attendees under the age of 13 are required to be accompanied by a designated guardian (though guardians are encouraged to attend for all ages). Attendees should bring a laptop or netbook for each student they bring if they can (and you are encouraged to bring extras if possible for those without access to a computer). RSVP on Meet Up!
