Thank you everyone for participating.
We are pleased to invite college age students and high school teachers to participate in a free Skateboard Building Class during Tech Fest, August 19-20, at the University of Louisville Engineering Garage. The sessions will be held from 9:00am to 1:00pm on Saturday and from 1:00pm to 5:00pm on Sunday.
We are excited to partner with U of L in the Skateboard Building Class as part of Tech Fest. At the last Techfest in 2015 we hosted educators and students from The University of Louisville Speed School, Trinity High School, and Ballard High School. This year we will limit the class size to 15 and prefer 2 to 4 students per participating high school teacher or professor.
There will be no charge for the class and each participant will receive a skateboard (or longboard) that they design and build.
