Special Requirements:
I need a space 10 X 10 to set up and access to the internet . If the venue has an attached screen, mounted projector and sound system, I can hook my Mac laptop up to it. If I am using the school’s equipment, it would be helpful to have the school technology teacher help me connect. If I am using my own equipment, the equipment is set on a rolling cart so students may have to be positioned on either side of the rolling cart to have an unobstructed view. When calling students /teachers up on stage it would be helpful to have a volunteer to assist with students getting on and off the stage safely.
