We also brought a few other toys for the attendees to check out and play with. Rick was working the makerbot 3D printer, printing whistles and other fun objects. It's great to see that both adults and kids as young as a few years old are both interested in seeing how the printer works. The 3D printer always draws interest and it's a great way to get people's attention and teach them the basics of how the machine works. James brought a home built hexapod robot and let the kids control it via laptop. They had a lot of fun making it walk around, dance, etc. Bob brought his Blinkenlights project, which was an attention getter for sure. Who doesn't love blinking LEDs?
How are we going to hit the target audience?
Low level workshops are one or two very long days.
Higher level classes are over several weeks.
6000 for more workshops and some fundamental class to get through part of a curriculum.
10000 follow entire track intro plus a little hands on plus workshops then classes.
theory-practice. build the bridge between both worlds. don't limit one group to just one end of the spectrum.
bring knowledge base to disadvantaged folks.
Possibly approach girl scout troops to address gender issues
Saturday workshops have a list of ongoing classes would help bring people in.
Safety checks and equipment to help.
Kelly MS and Madison MS. one or a series.
Put school plus coordinator. Kristina Jameson:
4:30 to 5:30 enrichment classes.
