Bob and I spent from 10 – 4 all day Saturday at the Children’t Museum of the Upstate for their big Innoscate (skate board) event. They figure they had about 2500 people come.
We were there showing our eNABLE hand project and also brought in volunteer Kevin Van Deusen from Computer Source to show people a variety of 3D printers. We were very busy. We had six other volunteers from our group to help too and needed everyone. I would say we had between 750 and 1000 parents and kids come in.
It is so fun to watch their faces because most have never seen a 3D printer and they have no idea how it could print a hand. You can just see the understanding come into their eyes.
We made a couple good contacts for schools, including NEXT high school which is opening next week.
We did pretty well when we were there but when we got home about 5 we were exhausted and stiff from standing all day. The photos tell it all.
