Who's coming?

Check the Registration talk page to see who's attending (add your name if you're coming!)

How to apply

If you're interested in attending the Jam, form a team (2-4 people) that you want to work on a project with, and apply for a spot by emailing Bob Chao with answers to the following questions:

  1. Team name
  2. Names of team members
  3. Contact information (email)
  4. What is your experience/background, and why are you interested in coming to the Jam? (3-5 sentences per person, description of teaching experiences especially helpful, if you have any.)
  5. What kind of project would you like to work on during the Jam? (3-5 sentences per team; doesn't need to be an exact idea, even something like "we'd like to work on something for teaching Chemistry," or "we will make a mathematics lesson plan for 4th graders that involves an art project" is great.)

We will notify you of your status within 24 hours. We have room for about 10 teams in the Jam, and admission is on a rolling basis, so apply now!

Notes on attending

Formal teaching experience is helpful but not necessary; at the last Jam (during which we developed computer games) we had teams with experts and professionals from game development companies, but we also had parent-child teams, a team of college-age siblings, and even a team of high schoolers. (The college-age brothers won).

We also have a few spots for people who would like to work with multiple teams on a subject they are experienced in. For instance, if you are an artist and would like to be a general resource for teams at the Jam who want art, or if you are a programmer and would like to help all the teams at the Jam with their computers, please contact Bob Chao.

Attendance at the Jam is free. (We are currently working on providing meals for free as well - we will keep you updated, but there is a chance you may have to pack a lunch or two.)
