BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton – April 11 & 12 (Sat & Sun). Join us for “DaVinci’s Faire” – a weekend of learning, wonder, and amazement! Besides our traditional BarCamp “unConference” experience where YOU are the expert, we will have Makers, Inventors, Robots, Gamers, a Quick-pitch competition for entrepreneurs, and tons of fun. For 2015, we’re adding a Science & Technology mini-festival, and a wing of technology tracks. If you thought past BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton events were great – you haven’t seen anything yet!
Best of all – BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton is FREE when you pre-register.
What is DaVinci’s Faire?
Imagine that, besides the traditional BarCamp experience, you would also be able to walk around a Faire containing Makers with their cool gadgets and machines, Inventors showing off their ideas and prototypes, school Robotics teams running their creations in the hallways, and a Gamers room where there will be game design sessions, discussion of advanced gaming concepts, and surely, games being played!
We also have a hall dedicated to a Science and Technology mini-festival where you’ll be able to see the ideas of our scientists and engineers put into practice. Another cool feature of the conference for entrepreneurs is the availability of experienced mentors that will coach you in making a pitch for your great idea, culminating in a quick-pitch competition where we give out small cash prizes to the winners. Very fun and dynamic!
BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton can be described in three words: Share – Learn – Grow. Every attendee – no matter how old or young – has a story and an expertise. Come prepared to learn and share as we all grow together.
Don’t even think of missing the fun!
Makers & Inventors, Science & Engineering, and Robotics teams register for a table to share your “creations from.”
Bring your family for a terrific weekend in beautiful Bradenton, FL. There’s plenty to do and see, including the Bradenton Riverwalk (opened in late 2012), the South Florida Museum, beaches, Village of the Arts, Historic Bradenton, baseball, brew pubs, and much, much more!
Wow, what a weekend! We will again be enjoying the incredible Manatee Technical College facility on State Road 70 near I-75 in Bradenton, Florida.
* FREE registration is available for those who register in advance. Entry is $10 at the door if you don’t do us the favor of pre-registering.
