We encourage all our students to contact us with times and availability that want to participate in the demos or volunteer to assist us at our table with basic Q&A from inquiring individuals or with the Prize Wheel. We are planning to have a 10’ x 10’ mat area in front of our booth to accommodate the demos.
If you wish to help us set up, you can meet us at SCNY at 10:00am and help us bring the materials over to our booth, or you can meet us at 10:30am at our booth.
