Maker Faire and Popsicles

  • By: Published: 10 May, 2012 0 comments

With temperatures warming up in Rocklin, it feels as if summertime is finally upon us. After the rain and hail we experienced during our Expo, the heat is certainly a welcome change. The Parallax team certainly loves any excuse to indulge in popsicles, a summertime favorite around here.

After the Parallax Expo and making it all the way to Washington, DC for the USA Science and Engineering Festival things have been mighty busy around the Parallax office. This week nice and calm as all the preparations have already been made for our next event, next weekend’s Maker Faire Bay Area in San Mateo, CA.

The Parallax Crew will be hitting the road on Friday and will be all over Maker Faire on Saturday and Sunday May 19th-20th. Stop by the Parallax booth where we’ll have plenty of Boe-Bots, Scribblers and Sumo-Bots running around in our robot playpens. Find a friend and head over to our Sumo Bot arena. You’ll both be able to battle Sumo Bot-style using our wireless tilt controllers. Be sure to pick up a special coupon at our booth for 15% your entire purchase with Parallax through the end of May. This coupon is only available at the show so be sure to come by and grab one.

Nick and Kevin from tech support will be in the Maker Shed running Robotics Shield Kit (for Arduino) and ELEV-8 quadcopter demos. Please stop by and say “Hi” and find out about these exciting new products. And if you need to stock up on your favorite Parallax parts at the show please visit the MakerShed for all your product needs.

See you in the Bay!
