On May 2, 2015, I held a Squishy Circuits workshop in a new location. This workshop, held at the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District board room, was a great success. This workshop was different in a way that many of the children who attended were much younger in age than past workshops. Regardless of the shift in age, everyone enjoyed the workshop and had a blast. Also, a large number of the attendees of this workshop were also part of the LVJUSD Migrant Education Program. The Migrant Education Program supports migrant children. To qualify for Migrant Education services, a child must have moved with a parent or guardian across a school district’s boundaries in order that the parent or member of his immediate family might secure temporary or seasonal employment in an agricultural or fishing industry.
To close off this special workshop with a bang, we demonstrated the use of Arduino with squishy circuits. Overall, I hope in the near future I will be able to work more closely with LVJUSD.
