We know. It’s been over a month since our Holiday Fund for the Nerdy drive ended (for us, the holidays go through February). So, let’s see where the Big-Brained Superheroes are now, shall we?
BBS Accelerator is actually happening! By popular demand, we’re experimenting with opening up the lair on Friday evening so that Accelerator members can work on their projects. While regular club meetings are still holding strong on Mondays and Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays are when the nerdiness goes to eleven.
Re-Maker Fest happened and we are still working on posting all the things we remade in February. Oh wait, here’s a thing:
Yeah. Remaking. If it’s being done well and in an innovative way, it takes time and care. And experimentation. Which also takes time and care. In short, a lot of time and a lot of care. And, of course, this means that remaking is an excellent way for our Big Brains to exercise their superpowers. Because sometimes the only thing we can learn to expect is the unexpected.
We’ve also just started a gardening program, in which Seattle Parks provides the seeds, and we design and maintain two planting beds out back of the community center. So far, Jack, our lead gardener sidekick, has worked with Big Brains to weed, fix the beds, and plant some sort of bean. User-centered designed birdhouses and bird feeders are also in-progress for the garden.
Those tiny tombstone-looking things in there are popsicle stick plant markers. We’ll be posting updates on how our garden grows.
Now that we’ve mentioned some of the Brain building, let’s mention some of the builders. None of these activities would happen without these organizations:
And then there’s people like you! All the individuals out there who help make our Big-Brained Superheroes grow. Thank you for all you do!
