GeekMom at Maker Faire
It was a wild and wonderful weekend for the GeekMoms at Maker Faire in New York!
The GeekMom/GeekDad booth at World Maker Faire New York last weekend welcomed a steady stream of families interested in all we have to offer, including simple robotics projects from Kathy Ceceri’s new activity book. You can watch a video of the talk she gave about “Low Tech/No Tech Robotics Projects for Kids” on Sunday at the Make Demo and Make: Live stages on Make’s Google Plus page.
Helene took some spectacular pictures of the event, too, just in case you missed it. Check out the bottom of the post to see the gallery!
