Today we held a Goodwill fundraiser! We were only expecting to get maybe 4 bins filled but we were lucky enough to get 7 bins filled!!!! A big thanks to those who came out to support us!!!! This money is going towards paying for our trip to #Piwars2019
Today we were invited to Meow Wolf to participate in a micro controller showcase. Mr Bruce and a team of Students traveled to Santa Fe New Mexico to share some of our HackerSpace activities, including HAL3000. Students participating in the outreach were, Paul Judge, Stephanie Perez, Dalton Pierce, and Marlan Ball plus CNM Faculty member Rob Garner joined in on the fun. In addition to sharing HAL3000 we demonstrated our Raspberry Pi based super computer, our student built 3D printer, Marlan's awesome LED cube, and Sense Hat animation activity. All demonstrations were well received and the students had a lot of fun sharing and exploring Meow Wolf exhibits.
Starting from Left to right we got Paul in the back, Steph in the front left jimmy in the middle, Me (Abby) on the right and Mr Bruce. Unfortunately Dalton couldn't make it to the meeting that we took this at.
Okay so maybe not that kind of famous...but we like to think we are cool.... CNM Marketing came to our Friday HackerSpace meeting to interview us for an article about the #Piwars2019 team! How awesome is that!!! Check it out here!
