February 10, 2017 by  

Geeks from Tempe and the surrounding communities are invited to an event that has been planned with them in mind.

Through a partnership with the arizona SciTech Festival, the city will be hosting its ninth annual Geeks Night Out. Participants in this family friendly occasion will be able to enjoy a variety of hands-on activities related to math, science, technology, arts, and engineering.

According to the organizers, if last year’s event was any indication, this year should be exciting for all. Schools, businesses, and organizations, especially ones that are involved in the sciences, are invited to set up a booth or display, and the planners have provided them with a list of guidelines and tips that they can use to ensure their contribution to the night will be a success. Those who plan on taking part are reminded that it will be a “bring your own booth” function, but there will be limited resources at the venue. Banner printing can be used by exhibitors to produce banners, signs and other materials they can use to decorate their display.

The Tempe Community Complex will serve as the location for the evening, which will take place on March 2. It is being offered free of charge, and anyone who is interested in participating or who just wishes to find out more is invited to visit its website.
