Young Makers Planning Meeting

  • August 7, 2014 · 7:00 PM

Parents and kids (roughly ages 6-17), join us to plan the direction for a Denhac Maker Camp based loosely around the official Maker Camp curriculum. Especially with the loss of our Coder Dojo and Science Dojo, we'd like to establish a meetup targeted specifically at all our younger makers and hackers. We will have a fun activity from the Maker Camp for kids to work on while parents discuss days, times, frequency, topics, etc. for what they'd like to see from a denhac offering. If you're not able to attend, you can also submit your preferences and ideas to Robb ([masked]) or Heidi ([masked]). 

We have received a fun box of gear from Make and will have that out to look through (soldering kits and irons, Makey Makey, Arduino UNOs, a stack of kid-oriented books, tees and stickers, etc). It's really a great program and next summer we'd like to try implementing it from the beginning of the summer. The Maker Camp curriculum can be viewed here: http://makercamp.com/summer-2014/schedule/ though we are not constricted by it. It's also almost over for the summer so we can pick and choose the projects and "field trips" we like, and add new content where we want it.

You can join the discussion on the 'denhac - Young Makers' G+ page now! https://plus.google.com/115102138625157796039/about

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
