This past Saturday we had the opportunity to share the technology behind the PicoCricket with children in the FunKidz Tech club. FunKidz Tech Club is a newly founded with the vision of exposing children to the wonders of science outside of the classroom. We were set up by around 9 am, right about when the children started streaming in.
The PicoCricket took centre stage under the FabLab team’s guidance the kids were able to assemble cool stuff like cars and smart houses. I’ve got to admit that it was a two way learning experience because we honestly learned a thing or two from these bright kids.
Their parents were also in the mix, and very enthusiastic about the whole project.
We are very excited to be taking this on for the next 12 weeks.
