  2. How much does it cost?

Student volunteers will help with the computing activities. We will also have the ever-popular scavenger hunt.

In addition, parents of young children will need to provide any diapers, wipes, baby food, blankets, formula and bottles that may be needed. If you have a digital camera that you would be comfortable leaving with your child, please bring it with you, along with the cable for transferring video / images to the PC.
