Hack the Future 25 is tomorrow! Please arrive by 8:30am at The Tech Interactive, 201 S Market St, San Jose, 95113. Once you get inside, let them know you are from Hack the Future so you can get checked in and directed to New Venture Hall.
If your plans have changed or you plan on arriving later in the day, no problem. So far I know that Gopi for one won't be able to make it until the afternoon.
If you find yourself lost, call me at (609) 865-6725
Stations & Captains: Your tentative station assignments are in the spreadsheet. Captains, please ensure everything you need for your station is in order, and reach out to your fellow station mentors as needed. If you'd like to swap roles, just let me know. If you want to do a co-captain setup that works too, just know now you'll both be on the hook from me.
Equipment and Supplies: So far I'm recalling:
Joe: Two HDMI monitors with power cords and HDMI cables, 150+ paper plates, boxes containing all our files, power strips, and other supplies dropped off after HtF24
Nick: Boxes of HtF25 kids shirts from CustomInk, additional waiver printouts, four soldering irons from Kenny
Mark Miller: 15 micro:bits for lightning talk prizes giveaways, loaner laptops
Emily: Everything from Costco run
Jim Whitfield: Arduino supplies, HDMI monitors with power cables from Kenny
Stacie & Mark Schmidt: solder, clippers, 50 Flickery Flame Kits, additional soldering irons unless the four with Nick are sufficient?
Tim: DJI Robomaster?
Bryan: Raspberry Pi's and various peripherals
me: 8 Raspberry Pi Zero W for lightning talk prizes, more Raspberry Pi's and various peripherals.
Anyone: Anyone bringing 3D Printers?
Everyone: Just like the students you'll be better off if you bring your own laptop. If you have a spare you can loan to a student, that’d go a long way and be appreciated!
Let me know if anything's missing.
We're estimating less than 90 kids instead of the original target 100, so we may have extra micro:bits, Raspberry Pi W's, and Flickery Flame Kits at the end. We'll just plan to roll these supplies over to HtF26.
T-shirts: If you have mentored in the past, please come wearing your blue mentor T-shirt. Unfortunately it turns out only about a third of you reported already having mentor shirts, and I did not realize our mentor shirt supply had run out. For this event we'll have the fezzes and blue tags for you instead, and hope to get the rest of you your due T-shirts at HtF26.
