School Sucks..Maker Culture is Literally Making Learning Better!
+Maker Faire has changed my life.

The amazing number of more than 130,000 people enjoyed the Happiest Place on Earth.

During the weekend, you were one of 1100+ maker exhibits, presentations, and performances who showcased and shared what you make, and together we touched over 130,000 attendees. Maker Faire continues to encourage new makers and nurture the maker community. The impact we have on inspiring and educating people and in growing the Maker Movement is immeasurable and important.

Attendees came from over 42 countries and 49 states to experience Maker Faire Bay Area 2014! Thank you for making it great.

Project Shipping Today

Today is the day.

My secret project for +Intel and +Maker Faire is shipping today.

I have to say a extra THANK YOU to +Stewart Christie  at Intel for all his help. The project had some issues. Dr. Stewart spend all day fixing it while I was at school.

I wish there were some pictures I could show you of the project in the 'hospital'. If I will figure it out.

Now the real test is...can it make it to +Maker Faire +Intel and work...

See you all next weekend.

Techshop Weekend - From Maker Mom

Joey's Mom:

The last 2 days Joey and I have spend more than 30 hours +TechShop in Chandler, AZ. (1 hour from our house) He is working on finishing his "surprise" project for the +Intel booth +Maker Faire in San Mateo.

What a wonderful team they have +TechShop - It really reminded me of the people you meet at +Maker Faire  They are always always there to help and give advice. Joey has been very fortunate to have a wonderful team of +Intel employees and people he just met, supporting his project.

You don't have to do a project alone. Collaborate, learn and have fun.

I even got to learn to use a grinder. I have to say it was hard but really fun. I wanted a picture of myself in the getup - welder mask, jacket, gloves etc..Joey took one look at me and rolled his eyes and smiled. Love that kid.

I can't begin to thank them. They have given up there weekend just to lend support/help to the success of Joey's project.

Part of the project was finally put together - kinda last night...I was a bit speechless (that doesn't happen much) It was amazing! This afternoon, after Joey finishes some homework we will venture back so he can complete the project. Deadlines are hard but good.

Here are some pictures that I can show you. I'm usually really excited to go to +Maker Faire but I am even more excited this time. I'm so proud of what Joey has done, can't wait for you all to see it.
