Robots Day Rocked!
Robots Day is in the books. Lots of people said they had a great time and we’ll take their word for it. 🙂
Thanks to all our sponsors. BlackRock, Intel, and the STEAM 3D Hackathon for Teens were so wonderful to work with and added so much to the experience for the kids.
And now we have a nice collection of hardware to plan new stuff with (or take to remote events). There’s definitely more hardware and robot hacking in Seattle CoderDojo’s future.
A more detailed blog post with photos is coming soon.
Tech Sticker Day Is August 8th
Greg brought back hundreds of tech stickers for all sorts of tech companies and technologies from the Open Source Conference (OSCON), plus we’ve been getting a few from local tech companies. We’ll be featuring a sticker table at our August 8th Dojo. If your company or tech group has cool stickers you’d like to share on the sticker table, contact us so we can make some space for you.
Game Development Workshop is Cancelled
Mentor Avi had to cut short his Game Development workshop for personal reasons. We’ll still honor the extended tickets for the workshop through August 22, but we’re trying to figure out what we’ll be doing in that room.
Sign the Thank You Card
One sponsor who doesn’t get as much credit as they should is Amazon.com. Because they’re always there, we tend to take them for granted. Yet we wouldn’t be able to do this nearly as well as we do without their facilities and the great Amazonians who volunteer. So we got them a 4-foot-tall “Thank You” card and we’ll have it out for people to sign at the August 8th and August 22nd Dojos. If you feel you’ve gotten a lot out of CoderDojo, please try to make it to one of those sessions and sign the card.
