Yay! Next stop St Louis (USA) for the World Festival between 24 and 27 April 2013.
The story so far ...
- March 2007: three of us meet under a tree at school and bring materials together to build stuff, the 'inventions club' is born
- February 2010: couple of members of the group move to different schooling arrangements but we still want to meet up - the 'inventions club' becomes slightly more formal, just a group of us meeting one evening every week, making stuff and minecrafting a lot, hacking remote control toys and building a go-kart, still no robots yet
- February 2012: no single school connection, we are all at different high schools and/or home schooled, still meeting weekly, go-kart project is in full flight now
- July 2012: LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 kit is ordered and delivered - LEGO now takes over part of our weekly meets at 'inventions club'
