    Panel Participants Wanted: Tech and Teens
    Would you like to see youths in your area more engaged with computers,
    electronics, and related technology? Do you know of opportunities to set
    up makerspace-like environments that would welcome teens who are
    interested (but might have a lot to learn)? Have you tried to set
    something like this up, but run into obstacles? Please consider being a
    panelist at the DC802 meeting this Saturday, Sept. 18, and contributing
    your knowledge and experience. This panel is meant to be the start of
    discussion and networking, leading to makerspace-like facilities and
    programs for VT youth.

    The meeting will be held at Judd Hall which can be located on the Campus Map. Direction are here

    The Defcon Groups were spawned from the annual Defcon security conference in Las Vegas. The Defcon Groups (DCGs or DC-Groups) are a gathering point for folks interested in the alternate applications of modern technology, referred to properly as ‘hacking’. DCGs are not intended to compete with any other computer groups, such as 2600, but rather to provide yet another gathering place for the discussion of technology and security topics. DCG meetings are open to anyone, regardless of their skill, age, job, gender, etc. DCGs are designed to help you learn new things, meet new people, mentor others in areas you may be strong in, and provide some cohesion within the hacker culture and it’s members.

    See you there!
