Expanded Youth Track for NWC37

Norwescon ProgrammingBlog, Norwescon 37, Programming

If you have been leaving the kids home while you jaunt off to attend Norwescon every year, you might want to rethink that for 2014. Our expanded Youth Track has some excellent offerings this year to educate and entertain kids of all ages. (Even those of you that should have left childhood behind decades ago – you know who you are.)

We will have story hours, crafting workshops that include making stuffed sock toys, creating airships, and even building an entire city (which will then be destroyed in a free-for-all of smashing and roaring), and fannish jewelry making. There will be many active games for our younger members and even a guided “space tour” of the convention that will take them behind the scenes and teach them how the con works.

Our teen members might enjoy learning how to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse, honing their acting skills in Sci-fi Improv, and discovering how to amaze their friends and terrify their parents in our Stage Fighting panel. For budding authors, there will be writing workshops and an opportunity to learn about crafting and editing your manuscripts.

Norwescon has always been family-friendly, so bring your youngsters and introduce them to fandom life at Norwescon 37!
