BSidesKC Security Conference | April 20-21, 2018 | Cerner Innovations Campus, KC, MO

Hak4Kidz Village

The BSidesKC Hak4Kidz Village will be a dedicated space for kids to participate in activities and discussions.

Any child or student 8-14 years of age.

Free! All children will get free admission on Saturday with a registered adult.

Kids do not need to register or purchase a ticket! Instead, just send an email to from an adult who is registered for the conference. No child name(s) are needed, but rather just a count. For example, I will have one child attending the conference with me. This will help us ensure we have plenty of volunteers for the village!
