Well, we're back from Maker Faire NY, 2011 and we didn't come back empty handed. Jessica Uelmen won a Makey Award for her extensive series of educational videos released over the last few years, and although she is now our Engineering Manager, she will still take time out to create videos and other documentation to promote electronic education. These videos are all available online to view and share on our YouTube Channel or through the two playlists we've made to make Jessica's videos more prevalent - Stamps in Class 'Mini Projects' and S2 Robot Activities. We'll be sure to keep everyone abreast with any new developments in videos by Parallax as they will be displayed prominently on our site and through this new DIY Blog identity; they will feature the videos and associated information from Jessica and other personalities within Parallax.Maker Faire was very successful, although we had a few bumps along the way with some of our promotional items getting lost in delivery, but all-in-all we had a fantastic time in New York and we are looking forward to the next event! We put robots on display and mingled, traded thoughts and contacts with other representatives at the show and received some direct feedback from happy visitors; our booth was jamming!
