Makerfaire 2015 was amazing! We had a great time building Bots with lots of kids for three straight days! We also launched our new driverBot kit, We were kitting parts as we were selling them which made for a very exciting weekend. Thank goodness Nick and Jasmine saved the day.
We finally have the driverBot directions updated here.
Stay tuned for more....
Woo Hoo! we are back at the Makerfaire Bay Area 2015, which is the 10th anniversary of this amazing event. Look for us in the main expo hall, we are across from DFRobot (cool company) and Roblox. Looking forward to the awesomeness and all the wonderful people who make Makerfaire what it is.

Summer is for Camping
Maker Faire Bay Area officially the best ever.
Well we thought so at least!
This years event was one of our best yet, we have been participating since 2007 and it just keeps getting better and better. We had a great team of people helping out and they really worked hard to make it a success. We had so many roboteers in our workshops, young, old and several who are graduates of our previous workshops.
Check out our latest collaboration with Make: Library Makerspaces (link) The goal is to provide robot kits to libraries! How cool would that be if you could check out a kit, build, learn and play! When you are done, return it and check out the next kit in the series.
Open Make: At The Tech
We were invited to participate in the grand opening of The Tech Studio, a makerspace for young people at The Tech Museum of Innovation. From their website:
A collaboration between The Tech Museum of Innovation, MAKE Magazine, and
Pixar Animation Studios, Open Make is a monthly program highlighting the tools,
techniques, and ingenuity of local Makers.
There was a great write up of the event over at the Maker Education Initiative.
