Recapping Lentil Festival

A few months ago, we did a paper circuit activity for our first MakerSpace. It was a lot of fun, and it got the ball rolling for creating our physical MakerSpace. Thus, we were thrilled to be doing paper circuits again — this time with the community! August 22 and 23, we were at Lentil Festival. A lot of visitors were excited to learn how to make paper circuits, and some of the younger children were happy to just color our Digilent MakerSpace robot mascot. In spite of heavy rain Friday evening, there were still plenty of people stopping by.

 

A few of us went by for set up:
