    Catherine @genegeek that would be sooo cool! Katriona Guthrie-Honea, the teen-aged co-founder of the HiveBio community bio lab in Seattle, will be there August 7 (she RSVPed via one of the Meetups). See http://www.geekwire.com/2013/biotech-space/ on that, HiveBio are opening soon and they should all meet! I also want to get a team together to hack on https://github.com/openscienceASAP/openscience-wordpress-theme which is being built for open notebooks. We want to use it at the new http://onsnetwork.org and it would be cool to get feedback from anyone who has notebooked with WordPress.

      That is awesome! All 3 teens tried Open Science last year. I learned a few things ;) We’re trying again this year if you want some guinea pigs

    This is great! I’m going to try to bring some teens from Vancouver
