As the lights come up and we take our EmpireJS family photo, we’ll immediately segway into our final adventure of EmpireJS 2016—a scavenger hunt!
Experience our conference neighborhood and the history of NYC with your new friends! Our partners at Museum Hack will be leading us from the stage of NMAI and around the area on an interactive scavenger hunt to explore with the FiDi and old New York. Discover surprising facts, some cool history, and maybe find a cool prize at the end! This party wraps up at a secret bar to be determined as part of our hunt! (Please contact us if you need additional information to plan your travel)
EmpireJS couldn't be possible with the support of our fantastic sponsors.
This scholarship is open to anyone who will be in New York City on May 26th and 27th. Because we are a community-run event, we are unable to provide travel and lodging as part of this initiative at this time, but hope to be able to in the future.
We hope this scholarship program can enable you to join us and contribute to our community!
