Check Out this Photo Album (over on the Alamance Makers Guild page on Facebook).  The photos are from today's First Technology Challenge (first robotics) scrimmage at Elon University here in Elon NC.  My Alamance Makers Guild supports the "Aperture Science" team from Western Alamance University and are pleased to have them as members of our group.

I'm a guest again (for the 4th time now!) on the DIY Show a podcast by AV nation for the Maker Community.  The topic of this episode is 3D printing and I talk a little about how 3D printing might make a difference in the STEM classroom, especially for math classes.  Also talk about different printers, software, repositories of objects, copyright and DRM, printed body parts (yes you read that right) and the history and future of 3D printing.  Available streaming from their website at the link below or for download on iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/av-week-mp3-edition/id452089049

Harris Educational was the guest of the EV Challenge this weekend. High School students convert gasoline vehicles into electric vehicles and then compete in a variety of events including written tests, verbal tests, demonstrations of their vehicles, and finally an actual race. Harris Educational is working with the EV Challenge to help design a new troubleshooting simulator that schools can use to teach EV Circuit principles and troubleshooting skills.

I was the guest on this AV Nation (rAVe Pubs) Podcast "The DIY Show", for an episode all about kits, science kits, the history of kits, and the impact of kits on kids, families, and education. I'm really pleased with the results. The podcast is available streaming from their website, or via iTunes.

New Blog and video about my recent trip with other members of my Alamance Makers Guild to learn about Blacksmithing (specifically nail making). This is an example of my idea of "Teachable Moments from Maker Spaces"

Reinventing Edison: I just found this video made by a Father and Son about my Reinventing Edison: Build your own Light Bulb science kit. Its great to see a father and son doing science projects together, and I love the enthusiasm in the Son's voice.
