Hack the Space Day! This Saturday! 5-31-14

In an attempt to clean and organize the space, this Saturday we’re hosting our first Hack the Space Day! We’ll be serving free burgers and hot dogs *BYOB*. Everyone is welcome to stop by and we encourage you to help out but it’s not required. By the end of the day we hope to have junk removed, everything else put away, and processes in place to keep the space cleaner. Who knows what shenanigans we might get into along the way. We hope to see you there! RSVP on Meet Up!

This week at denhac May 5 – May 11

Monday, May 5th, 2014: Happy Cinco de Mayo! 

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014, 8:00 PM: Open House! Tuesday night Open House is the most happening night of the week. Someone’s always working on a project or just hanging out. It’s the best time to come by and see what we’re all about.

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014: {}

Thursday, May 8th, 2014, 9:00 AM: Work From Denhac Day! Thursdays are a favorite among the members who work remotely. It’s a good opportunity to get some of that oh-so-important social interaction you miss out on by working from home. What better place to work from than denhac with like minded geeks and tons of stuff to play with!?

Friday, May 9th, 2014, 8:00 PM: Game Night! Games! Games! Games! Who doesn’t like to play games!? Admittedly, the games have been a little lacking the past few weeks however that doesn’t mean we aren’t up for it. It just means we’re… easily distracted. So join us! Something interesting always happens even if it isn’t a game.

Saturday, May 10th, 2014, 12:00 PM: Open House Part Deux! The Saturday open house is exactly the same as the Tuesday open house except it’s on Saturday! Just another opportunity to check out the space for people who are too busy during the week to stop by. We love meeting new people!

Sunday, May 11th, 2014, 11:00 AM: 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, May 11th, 2014, 12:00 PM: Kids’ Coder Dojo! The Kids Coder Dojo at Denhac is a weekly computer programming class designed for elementary through high school-aged kids.

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).

Sometimes there’s even cold sodas in the fridge!

Friday, March 14, 2014: Pi Day and Game Night! March 14th is Pi Day (3.14) and every Friday at Denhac is Game Night so tonight will be about eating pi(e), perhaps playing with Raspberry Pi’s, and movies that have almost nothing to do with pi besides their names (Pi, Life of Pi). Bring your favorite flaky, fruit-filled confection and join the celebration!
