Exploring San Jose Through Technogeography

Young Urbanists 5:00 p.m.
The situationalists defined psychogeography as a method of geography that emphasizes playfulness and "drifting" around urban environments, giving people a new awareness of the urban landscape. Join us as we adapt this concept for the 21st century and use the technology in our smartphones to explore downtown San Jose. We will solve clues, uncover hidden gems and enjoy a type of happy hour that you’ve never done before. Generously sponsored by Microsoft.
