Morgan Spurlock, Director of Supersize Me and all around idea guy, came up with this divine/diabolical idea of the Failure Club. In it, you tackle something that you deeply want but terrifies you, and you try to fail at it in a big way. HackerMoms do that together as a weekly group to vent, listen, applaud and encourage each other to do what scares us and still survive. We’ll have a failure wall for our trophies. It’s not so scary when we’re together, and the failure wall becomes a wall of pride – because in order to fail that big, we must really, really try.Tearful inspiration: http://video.search.yahoo.com/search/;_ylt=AjUT7PDDA0OJwhVI3usIvNISkUIv?fr=uh3_screen_vert_gs&type=2button&p=failure%20club.
The Failure Club is for HackerMoms members only to preserve a safe space and sense of commitment. Each Failure Club lasts 3 months long and projects should fit in a 3 month plan that ends with an achievable goal. Each meeting is spent working on the next step of your dream coming true. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. Fail fast and start again! Members can sign up for childcare at: http://hackermoms.eventbrite.com.
We give mothers of every gender the time and space to explore DIY craft and design, hacker/maker culture, community workshops, entrepreneurship and all manner of creative expression -- with on-site childcare. Our HackerSprouts program teaches children the creative process through educational childcare and STEAM-based workshops. HackerMoms creates families that build together.
