      My 13 year old high school student is taking a class on Game Design in her virtual school. Is the Nerd Summit in Amherst something she could attend by herself?

        The workshops are designed so a 13 year old should be able to participate without any assistance. The conference is at the UMass Conference Center. The workshops are all in several rooms that are near each other in the basement level. There is an hour break for lunch, which is available from the cafeteria on the main level of the building, and an hour keynote address between the morning and afternoon sessions.
