The 8th Annual Hawaii Geek Meet is coming Sunday, July 12, at Kapiolani Park!
It's a fun, casual, family-friendly, potluck picnic for groups and individuals who have a passion they're eager to share.
This has always been a grass-roots (literally) community event. There's no need to "staff a booth" or have fliers or presentations at the ready (although if you have such things, they're more than welcome!). We encourage participants to think of it as a potluck picnic for each individual group -- with all the camaraderie, shop talk, food and fresh air that would come with it -- but it will also be a picnic at which every tent around you is another cool club or group to meet, make friends with, and share some show-and-tell.
And we use a very inclusive, positive definition of the word "geek." Gadget lovers, tech heads, makers, artists, coders, entrepreneurs, teachers... past years have seen costumed storm troopers checking out solar telescopes, armored knights swordfighting in the shadow of a towering amateur radio antenna, and drone pilots building toy payloads out of LEGO. App developers have found beta testers, ham radio enthusiasts have recruited new students, and everyone's young geeky kids have made lifelong friends.
