Throwback Thursday: Digilent MakerSpace at Lentil Festival

This time last year, Digilent MakerSpace was getting things ready to open our booth and bask in the glory of legumes at Lentil Festival. While the MakerSpace had met at Digilent before that, the 25th Annual Lentil Festival was our first foray into having a booth in the outside world.

Fun was had by all! At the booth, the MakerSpace had a paper circuits activity (with coloring!) to appeal to community members of all ages.

We also had Macetech’s LED glasses there, which drew in the crowds — including the Lil’ Lentil King and Queen!

While the MakerSpace won’t have a booth at this year’s Lentil Fest, if you are in the Pullman area, we encourage you to go and embrace the nostalgia — and eat some chili.
