We had a blast this January taking a tour of Agritopia farms and learning about agriculture and how it impacts our daily lives. The kids got to take home a potted plant and also got to pick bags of citrus to take home!
Thanks Erich & Joe who put this together as well as Shaun of Chow Locally for his help and support.
The Hamilton High School Robotics Club came to hang out with us October’s Gangplank Jr event and worked with the kids to build some sweet robots as well as showcase their own projects.
They brought in a robot created at last year’s First Robotics Competition (FRC) that could shoot a basketball across the street. Almost 30 kids hung out with us on Saturday and (if the smiles were any indication) had a blast!
Our next event will be on Nov. 17 from 1p.m. – 2:30p.m. doing a videography lesson. Come join us and have some fun!
