Welcome to The Mentor Project's First Maker Group!
Mentor, Irene Yachbes, is teaching kids how to use the Arduino kit and the green screen for photo and movie making. Who better to pass on her enthusiasm for science and technology than an Aerospace Engineer (and former Spacecraft Engineer) who was the Lead Engineer for all electrical wiring on the Messenger mission to Mercury Spacecraft! The kids come to the maker group with their own ideas and Irene guides them, answers questions, and helps them figure out what they can work on at home. If they have questions between maker group meetings, Irene is available to answer their questions via email or Skype. The kids are able to develop their skills, hone talents, and explore ideas that are not otherwise accessible to them in school or at home. This friendly space offers the kids freedom to hang out with others who share a love for science and technology.
Stay tuned to see what these budding Nerds create!
