Attend one of DemiCon's workshops to learn some new skills or just to have fun.  In past years at Demicon, our attendees have built blinkies, constructed jetpacks, and so much more.  DemiCon 26 will be offering a wide range of workshops for various age groups, so visit this page again to see updates.
