Last Friday, for work, my partner, Michael and I took part in the Shhh is Out! It’s a Children’s and Youth Blow Out event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, to share a program (The Inventor's Workshop) we had come up with over the summer for the Brampton libraries to teach kids about circuitry, using MakeyMakey boards. We set up a table with a bunch of posters we had made, and a computer with the four-paddle pong game that I had programmed.

It was an interesting experience, because I'm not one for public speaking, especially in a room full of people older than I am. Michael and our supervisor, Don, did most of the talking, really. I'm better at more personal, one-on-one interactions. Overall, I think we did a good job, and got other libraries interested in what we were doing.

That's another name tag I get to add to my collection.
