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?
Another great event for area girls
By the age of 10, most girls have decided that computers, electronics, engineering, science, and math are not cool, too complicated, or just for boys.
On May 26 from 10 am to 3 pm, we are inviting all girls between the ages of 9 and 14 to join us at The Journey Group where we will help demystifying how electronics and appliances work by letting girls explore them by taking them apart in a safe and educational environment. The entire event is completely free, and I would like the moms also to join them. Read more
