+
*  When: Sunday 29 May 2016, 13:00 - 17:00(-ish)
*  Target age: 4-8
+
*  Where: At RevSpace, you can find it here: [[Bezoeken]]
** older kids are also welcome
+
*  Target age: 4 and up
** Younger as well, but will need more supervision, as RevSpace is not always safe for very small ones
+
** Main criterion is that they are not putting random things in their mouth any more and understand that no means no for safety reasons.
*  Confirmed number of kids : 8  (+4 tentative)
+
* Adults are expect to join the fun!
**  (if you plan to come, please add to this number)
+
** Please do not expect us to supervise your kid. A hackerspace is a kid-friendly, but is not the "ballenbad" at IKEA.  There will be sharp, pointy and hot tools around.
 +
*  Confirmed number of kids : 35 ish
 +
**  (if you plan to come, register by changing this number or by emailing gori@revspace.nl )
