We had an awesome Programming for Kids Meetup at 7hills Makerspace on Saturday 9/20. We had about 20 kids, ages 8-14, and their parents in attendance. The kids were introduced to programming using Scratch. By the end of the class, there were crabs and witches flying all over the space!
We will invite all the kids back in about a month so they can share the games, animations, apps and other things they’ve programmed on their own. The kids will all get to vote on the best program, and we’ll share links to all of them here on the site.
The company I work for is getting me to build a quadcopter, so thought I would share some pics, should be flying later today or tomorrow.
Outbreak of bad weather today in Rome. Took the following video outside the makerspace at 4th and Broad.
I backed the FlipBooKit project on Kickstarter.
My kit showed up last week and I had a chance this evening to assemble it. I thought everyone would enjoy seeing it in action.
I bought my daughters two identical swiss army knives for Christmas. To tell them apart, I wanted to mark them in a permanent way. I decided to engrave the plastic with the laser to give it some relief, and then fill in the impression with acrylic paint.
