We are looking for volunteers for this! Email email@example.com if interested.
MakerKids Robot Battle: Until our robot overlords assume their rightful throne, show them who’s boss at the MakerKids robot battle arena! You will be given a basic robot platform, and it’s your job to weaponize it using the provided craft materials! Mount your robot’s target balloons strategically – you get one bonus point for each easy to pop balloon. Once you’re done, get it in the arena, and use the remote control to demolish the target balloons of all comers!
Jenn will be giving a talk on May 17 from 11:30AM-12PM: http://makerfaire.com/makers/how-to-remake-the-world-through-making-with-kids/
Whew! Did we forget anything? Hope not! 🙂
Hope to see you in California! We will be looking for people to help spread MakerKids to new locales. If you’re interested, come say hi!
