We have done a few little things lately.
We partnered with the STEM to Them Bus at MCCSC to hold some Maker Mondays at Bloomington Graduation School. We took in the laser, a couple of Cricuts and a couple of 3D printers. We had a mini lesson for each one week, then had open lab times on the following 6 Mondays before school ended. We had from 5-12 kids participate at various levels. There were a few technology glitches : not all students could get Cura on their laptop, some couldnt get to tinkercad.com, some couldnt get to cuttle.xyz, Design Space is 18+ so the District would not put it on laptops….always things to work out.
We went to Linton-Stockton School District for the unveiling of their MyMachine prototypes. This is a collaborative effort by their 2nd graders who designed a product to help someone, some college students in a class at IU to work a little on prototyping, and a high school in Wisconsin for the next iteration of the prototype.
Most recently we had a table at CRE Rural Engagement Conference in French Lick. We took some digital fabrication demo items, a couple of coding items, a Cricut Joy and a 3D printer. We had the 3D printer running most of the day. About a dozen people stopped by, many had never seen a 3D printer in person. I got a couple of people to play with LEDs and a battery. A few visitors took postcards, hopefully they will contact us for more info/ideas/help.
