The Detroit Digital Justice Coalition is presenting another awesome DiscoTech (Discovering Technology Fair) this Saturday, September 29, at the Kemeny Recreation Center, 2260 S. Fort St., Detroit.

Here is a press release with details about the event:

September 17, 2012

For Immediate Release:

Special Commemorative Discotech (DISCOvering TECHnology)
Free Cookout, Community Workshops and Film Screening
A tribute to the late Mr. Robert J. Donaldson


The event is free, open to all ages and wheelchair accessible.

Join the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition for an special “DiscoTech” (DISCOvering TECHnology) honoring the late Mr. Robert J. Donaldson, the former director of the Kemeny Recreation Center in Southwest Detroit. This event is free and all ages are welcome.

Festivities begin at noon with an outdoor cookout (weather permitting) which will include a tribute to Mr. Donaldson on the Kemeny grounds. The DiscoTech will get underway from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Kemeny Recreation Center Gymnasium.

Learn more about the impact and possibilities of media and technology within our homes and communities. Take part in numerous hands-on workshops about the Internet, useful and free software, electronics, alternative energy, making your own music and many other interactive activities.

As part of the Electronics workshop stations, there will be a “Computer Anatomy” station, an “Introduction to Alternative Energy” station and a “How to Solder” station. Participants can also build their own audio synthesizer and learn how to properly dispose of electronic waste.

Attendees can visit the Consultation Station and engage in open Q & A sessions about social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, set up an e-mail account, and learn more about the Internet as a tool for community building through sharing pictures and local history. Also learn about Google’s free, open-source software packages.

The afternoon will also feature a commemorative montage in recognition of Mr. Donaldson’s long years of dedicated service to both youth and seniors at Kemeny and the 48217 community. The DDJC will also feature our ongoing film screenings of “The Internet is Serious Business”, a short documentary produced by youth from New York City’s City-As-School with the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) and People’s Production House. The film investigates how the Internet’s physical infrastructure works, who owns the Internet, and why it matters.

The Coalition is happy to host a range of special guests as well, including Detroit’s very own East Side Riders.
