While my Mom and other valiant citizens were marching for Science, myself and other Makers were doing our part promoting STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) to the locals here in Portland.
Despite having giant, puffy, pollen-soaked eyeballs (it’s allergy season here in Maine), Electro Toy Co. had a wonderful time at the Makers@PPL Maker Fair at the Portland Public Library on Earth Day 2017.
I displayed the Space Shuttle Mission Control Box, Danger Squid, and the Super Arcade Battlestation. I also displayed a lesser known ETC product, my Wooden ABC Truck Blocks with Chinese Flashcard Feature.
The toys were super popular with the kids, but I also had some great conversations with educational types about setting up demos and exhibits at different school functions around Portland. I’ve already locked in a spot at the Cape Elizabeth Festival of Curiosity on June 2. Should be fun! Stay tuned to the Facebook page for more details on future gigs.
