Eleven kids, ten meet-ups, one shorted board, a dozen blown LEDs, zero burnt finger, one story on KDLT, and two months of fun & creativity. That sums up our fourth Hack Sioux Falls project hosted by Code Bootcamp School.
When I first launched this project last year, I had no idea what to expect or what the kids would find interesting, but my idea was simple…
What would happen if we encouraged kids to build something cool using electronics, microcontrollers, sensors, and LEDs?
Twenty kids, twenty-one meet-ups, nine completed projects, three shorted boards, one burnt finger, and four months of fun — that sums up the first ever Hack Sioux Falls project hosted by Code Bootcamp School.
When I launched this project in April, I had no idea what type of projects that the kids would come up with, the idea was simple — what would happen if we encouraged kids to build something cool using electronics, microcontrollers, and LEDs?
Over a dozen kids are already signed up, this might sell out.
These challenges will take kids on a journey that will teach them electronics, hardware, software, soldering, functional design, user design, and creative thinking. While it will be run as a competition, it is meant to be a cooperative challenge where teams are encouraged to help each other with their projects.
