Education Day: I think it was ourselves who need to be educated! We had fun, talked to a LOT of kids, but weren't really prepared to educate about the solar generator adequately.
Kids come in waves: Students from classrooms all over the Bay Area experienced a special day at the Maker Faire. Kids came in small and large groups, but were pretty orderly and well-behaved.
What we learned: Kids LOVE anything that shoots flames -- like the Crucible flame truck here -- blows up, makes noise, plays loud music, looks totally wacky, shoots up in the air (like rockets), shoots across the compound or lights up. If you do two or more of the above, you're GOLDEN.
We're taking another shot at funding our pilot Project ME4... and on Day One of Round Two we've raised almost $800!
You too can donate today from our website <me-4.com>.
Meanwhile we're prepping our truck and solar trailer for Maker Faire in 10 days!
