Parking / ARRIVAL
Edcamp Hershey will be hosted by Hershey Middle School, however the closest parking lot will be the one at Hershey High School, which is right next to the Middle School Library Entrance. If it sounds confusing, see the map.
The address for Hershey Middle School:
500 Homestead Road
Hershey, PA 17033
Registration is between 9:00 am and 9:45 am. You do not have to arrive exactly at 9:00, but you do want some time for networking and breakfast. At the registration desk, you will get a name tag, post-it notes, and the networking game. Don't forget to stop by our swag table, because we have some awesome sponsors this year, including the last minute superheroes that saved lunch.
There will be breakfast and session building time in the library. While we are feeding you and have you as a captive audience, we are going to explain the Edcamp model to the newbies and explain the day. There will be four session groups, with two in the morning and two after lunch.
What to Bring / Wear
The dress code is casual. Whatever you want to wear to be comfortable. A shirt with a logo of your favorite tech tool can be a great conversation starter. If bow ties give you confidence, go for it. You might want the option of layers; the building temperature can be unpredictable at times.
You will walk away with many ideas, so be prepared to record them either with a device or on paper. Sessions do not have to be about technology, but many times they will be, so bring a device so you can play along with everyone else. Wi-Fi will be available in all rooms. Most of the rooms will allow you to project laptops to share resources with others. There are a few low tech rooms that will be great for conversations.
Above is a map of the rooms we will use for Edcamp at the Middle School. The library will be the central hub.
