It’s baaack! Tempe’s second annual Geek’s Night Out will be held on February 21st, 2013. Geek’s Night Out is a special Third Thursday event sponsored by the Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives in conjunction with The Arizona SciTech Festival. From 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Tempe City Hall and 6th Street Park there will be a variety of geeky activities and exhibits that range from sustainability education to robots and videogames. Personally, I’m looking forward to full size replicas of R2D2, the Comicon Costume contest, and the chemistry demonstrations by Tempe’s Household Products Collection Center. Family friendly and best of all, FREE, the Geek’s Night Out is an event you should definitely mark on the calendar!
The Arizona SciTech Festival is an annual, state-wide celebration of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The goal is to raise awareness, education, and interest in STEM jobs in Arizona, and ensure a bright future both economically and scientifically for our state. This year’s festival will take place between February 9 and March 17, 2013, so if you can’t fit February 21st Geek’s Night Out into your books, look at the event schedule for nearly 200 other events lined up around Arizona. There will be concerts and plays, hands-on demonstrations, debates, conversations, site visits and MUCH more! Nearly all the events will be free and easily accessible by public transportation, since this intended to be a wide-reaching community celebration designed for all ages and interests.

Hope to see you all there…maybe without Mayor Mark Mitchell’s glowing robot eyes, though!
