FresCon celebrates geek culture at Fresno State.
That’s geek, not greek.
The free event features two days of panels and workshops plus gaming tournaments and a cosplay contest. Panel topics include things like zombies (have they jumped the shark?) and GeekEd (how being a nerd or geek can be an important part of a student’s identity). There will also be a live podcast from the NoTown Nerds and a screening of the Disney film “Big Hero 6.”
