Once upon a time, in a galaxy kinda far away, there was a starship that boldly went where no person had gone before. It was piloted by the infamous Captain Firk, and his 2nd Officer, Spork. Many good times were had. Or so the legends say.

If you’ve never heard of the Artemis, you really should check it out while it is docked at CodeMash!

Activities below are open to CodeMash Attendees as well as Kidz- please note age requirements.  Special Tickets are Required. Times and quantities (limited) are displayed when registering a ticket. Tickets will be opened before and during CodeMash. We know that some folks will want to register early, and others may want to wait until CodeMash. The first round of tickets will go live Monday, January 10, at Noon (Eastern), as long as the keyboard cat doesn’t hit the wrong button.

Cost: Free!

Location:  Salon C and F. (Remember: Captain Firk)

Times: Events are scheduled throughout CodeMash, during the Pre-Compiler and Main Conference. Check availability on Eventbrite for details.

Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator –> Ages 16+. Join five of your friends or complete strangers as you take control of a spaceship bridge!  Will you be the Helmsman, deftly guiding your ship through all the dangers of the sector?  Or the Weapons officer, locking on to your enemy before you send them to a fiery death?  Or perhaps the Science officer, scanning the enemy for weaknesses and providing navigational bearings?  Or maybe the Communications officer, coordinating the efforts of your allies and convincing your foes that they should surrender while they still can?  Or do you want to be the maestro of the Engineering console, keeping all the systems running at their peak efficiency while coordinating the damage control teams to heal your ship?  Or do you want to be the Captain, taking the input from all your officers in order to make the hard decisions that have to be made in order to survive and emerge victorious?  Special note: Chimps are no longer permitted on the main bridge.

Laser Tag –> Ages 16+
