We'll be at the Boulder Mini Maker Faire this weekend - and so should you!
This weekend, January 31st and February 1st, is the first-ever Boulder Mini Maker Faire! It's going to be an amazing event, with a huge focus on STEAM and education. If you've never been to a Maker Faire, this will be a great one to start with.
For our part, in addition to sponsoring the event, we're partnering with Beverly Bell who teaches art, welding, and craft-technology at Denver Academy and runs the all-girls maker club, TinkerBelles. She will be using the SparkFun Digital Sandbox to teach a 90-minute workshop, where you can familiarize yourself with the basics of programming and work in the Digital Sandbox environment.
Beverly will also host a paper circuits workshop where she will combine conductive materials (copper tape, conductive thread and ink, foil) -- with paper, cardboard, tissue, and other fibers to make learning electronics engaging and accessible.
It's going to be a wonderful event and we're really excited about it! You can learn more about what's going on and buy your tickets here. Hope to see you there!
