Public Transportation

Getting to AOL in the morning from west falls church metro is fairly efficient. The bus stops in front of AOL: http://www.loudoun.gov/DocumentCenter/Home/View/331

Going back to west falls is a little more challenging. At the same bus stop in front of AOL, you can catch a bus to the airport which has buses to west falls church. (Maybe you could have an announcement for a carpool opportunity): http://www.vatransit.org/routes/2013-03-23-04-08-54/dulles-to-dulles-weekdays

Join us for two hours of coding with friends using Scratch, Minecraft, HTML, Arduinos and more. Everyone will have a chance to demo their projects at the end of the meeting.


If you're a high school student, feel free to bring a project that you've been working on or give a short intro to a technology that you've been using. We always can use mentors, so if you're a software engineer, electronics guru or you just want to help kids learn how to code, contact us about helping out at our meetings.

If you have a laptop, please bring it to the meeting. Installing Twine 1.4, Scratch, Minecraft and other tools on the laptop beforehand is recommended, but if you don't know what to do, we'll help you out.

Important: Ages 7 to 17 are welcome, but children 12 and under MUST be accompanied by an adult for the entire meeting. Bringing a friend or two is fine, but please, no large groups.


Getting there:

The Thingstitute is located in downtown Rockville in the old red brick courthouse at 29 Courthouse Square. It's at the corner of Maryland and Courthouse Square with a large fountain out front. 

Enter via the front door. Walk down the hall and make a left at the elevator. We'll be on the second floor. An entrance without stairs is located in the rear of the building. Handicap parking is located next to the rear entrance. We'll have a sign with a number to call to get someone to open the rear door. 

Parking: Street parking is free on Sundays, but may not be available. The parking lot at 11 N Washington St is free and less than a block away. It is on the corner of Courthouse Sq and Washington St with an entrance right after the traffic light on Courthouse Sq. A second option is the COB parking garage on E. Jefferson and Monroe which is larger and also free. See rockvilleparking.com for other parking lots. 

Metro: If you are coming by metro, exit the station to the left and take the pedestrian bridge over Rockville Pike. Walk straight for a little over a block and you'll be there.
