This past January (2015) I traveled to Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua as co-leader of a service learning class from Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3). While in Nicaragua we conducted 3 ‘maker’ workshops with youth from a local orphanage in Puerto Cabezas. These workshops introduced littleBits and basic circuitry concepts to 21 youth – 12 boys and 9 girls.
I'll be returning to Puerto this coming January (2016) and we'll be building on last years initial workshops with some new sessions and participants. . Our initial workshops were a great start and were made possible by donations from a few friends. I've fired up another go fund me campaign for this year and thought I'd share this with all of you.
There is some more info on the go fund me page: https://www.gofundme.com/md7k49ms but I am more than happy to discuss details with anyone who is interested. There is also a bit more info over at my blog
Any and all support is gratefully welcome.
