I agree Nadine - I love seeing these localized efforts but it would be great if they could create a network that reached across the U.S. so that a wide range of kids could benefit.

This is really cool.  I'd like to hear about overall attendance and some of the top projects that come out of it.

I hope it comes to Northern California...it's a selfish wish for the cool kids in my life.

This is so cool because of the hands on aspect. Nothing makes engineering more exciting than getting to participate and getting something to work - and feeling that intense satisfaction when it does. After I successfully complete a project or get a piece of code to work that I have been fighting for awhile - I always do my happy dance.

Seems like a fun and educational event for learning how the world works by building and experimenting with cool stuff. Is there a website that provides additional information about GoEngineer? Also, wondering if GoEngineer was inspired by the Maker Movement that's sweeping the world in creating their summer camps and hands on activities.
