Education is more important than ever, students are overwhelmed or underserved. Either way, we want to supplement with fun electrical maker projects that get hands on with engineering and art...all of STEAM!
Sewing with Electronics - workshops that allow students to make their own #WearableTech with LEDs.
Intermediate classes offer programming and work with sensors & outputs.
Soldering - this is a good skill to have for any maker and we offer some practice, and then you can
create your own Bliplace, sound reactive jewelry - blinky light toy.
Programming - Arduino microcontrollers, understanding circuits and the codes to control them.
Paper Circuits - Our #PaperGem and #CircuitCard projects are great for beginners and use something familiar, a sticker, with something new a wire = copper tape!
Sunnyvale Public Library
Working in collaboration with the amazing librarians in Sunnyvale, Tenaya helped to create the Make-HER program, a grant funded set of free workshops for young girls and their mom's or female maker mentor! Tenaya also helps to lead a technological #CommunityQuilt project. Combining old maker skills with the new!
You may have heard Tenaya mention her love of Guatemala, ever since she visited the country in conjunction with an archaeological dig she worked on in Belize. Tenaya loves the Maya sites, but has found new passion working with the Guatemalan people who are talented, passionate, and down-right fun! We teach at a University and in the rural communities on an annual trip, and Rogue Making profits fund a suitcase full of electronics for Tenaya to give away (and teach with!)
Maker Faires & Mini Maker Faires
Whether I attend as Arduino Woman or Tenaya from Rogue Making, I have loved the maker faire environment ever since my first one in 2013. I love bringing my activities and #Wearable Tech to share with everyone who attends.
