BREWBoston and Take Flight!

Posted by thecastlegroup on September 29, 2010

Heard about BREWBoston?

This is a month-long celebration of entrepreneurship in Boston. There are a series of events, discussions and social media platforms – lots of ways to engage.

This is very much a community-driven effort — new events, sponsors and participants can become part of the celebration in a very fluid way.

Mass High Tech publisher and Castle friend Doug Banks is part of a really fun event that combines networking and paper airplane-building. Sadly, my skills are lacking, but we’ll see what Doug and his cohorts come up with.

Take Flight! event details:

You’ll get a chance to showcase your creative talent by flying your own custom-designed paper airplane (we’ll provide the supplies for a $5 donation to The Engineering School) against those designed by technology leaders including Doug Banks, Publisher of Mass High Tech, Matthew Growney, CEO of Isabella Products, co-founder of Rudyard Partners, and Scott Kirsner, Innovation Economy Columnist at The Boston Globe. Winners of the competition will receive great prizes like an Ambient Flurry Alarm Clark + Weather Forecast, Vizit two-way photo sharing frame, or tickets to the Museum of Science.
 
Registration is free but space is limited. Hope you’ll take flight with us on the 12th!
 
The Engineering School (TES) is a Boston public high school formed in 2005 as a response to the dramatic gap in the number of women and people of color in the field of engineering. TES’s mission is to provide young women, African-American and Latino students a pathway to careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). In addition, the school has a 30% population of students with disabilities and is committed to developing an inclusive engineering curriculum for all students regardless of ability. For more information about The Engineering School, please contact Marc Abelard, marcabelard@gmail.com.

Feel free to send me pictures or video of your paper airplane skills and we’ll post them on Castle’s Facebook page and with BREWBoston.
