Visit Us at the TVCOG


The SparkFun education team is all over the place these days, traversing the country on our National Tour. We just finished a rousing three week tour of the West Coast and there are dates in Oklahoma in the coming weeks! What we wanted to let you know about today is a workshop designed with educators in mind.

Tech Valley Center of Gravity (TVCOG) is an up-and-coming hacker/maker space in Troy, NY. This coming Sunday, July 7th, Jeff Branson - SparkFun Educational Outreach Coordinator - is running a workshop aimed at educators working to introduce younger populations to STEM topics and emerging technology. This workshop has a great price - it’s free!

In the workshop, we’ll cover techniques for getting kids building circuits and introduce some easy routes into programming and interactivity. Be sure to sign up using TVCOG registration page here and we’ll look forward to seeing you in NY!

  • Will there be public announcements of dates on Sparkfun website for these National Tour stops? I can understand where some venues might have closed attendance, but would love to know about other open enrollment ones. I have some mainland travel plans this summer and would love to share some time/space with the Tour Crew and hosts.

    • We will certainly publicize any events that are open to the public. A large majority of our Tour stops are private, but we will let you know otherwise.
