ONALA: Tinker and Talk Thursdays (3T)

Tinker & Talk Thursdays (3T) April 26, 7 – 9 PM Brought to you by @Annenberglab, @DIYGirls, @PyLadies & @ONA

Tinker & Talk Thursdays (3T) is a free monthly event that brings together geeks and students to share projects, solve technical problems and brainstorm creative uses for technology. 3T was created to foster a more inclusive environment for collaboration, and is hosted by the Annenberg Innovation Lab at USC through partnerships with DIYGirls, PyLadies, and ONA. Everyone is welcome.

This week’s brief talks include Ariel Levi Simons, who will talk about citizen science, makerspaces, and research partnerships in the classroom, and Melissa Loudon, who will present her work on a local bike commuting website.

Bring your great ideas and current projects for small group activities during our tinkering break-out sessions. This is the place to meet cool, like-minded people. If you’re having problems with a project, this is the place to solve them. If you have skills, maybe you can help that person from the last sentence. Or perhaps you just have an idea for a cool project that you’re interested in developing and don’t want to be hassled about your “business model.”

Coffee and light refreshments will be available. No recruiters please.

Join us at:
USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism
3502 Watt Way, Los Angeles, CA
