Wellness for Geeks Who Sit by GeekGirlStrong

In our daily lives we often pursue activities in which we have to sit a lot ━ working at a desk, bending over a sketchbook, or getting lost in a video game. All that time sitting can take a toll on your body. Our workshop ‘Wellness for Geeks Who Sit’ is geared towards improving the health and well-being of geeks of all ability levels. Pick up a few techniques to take to your next RPG day and become the wellness hero you were born to be!

At the end, participants can have a chance to show off their new little mechanized creations in an obstacle course or in a mini sumo ring! Whose mini-robot will reign supreme?
