    Great! I pay full price and a yellow bus shows up with one teacher and 38 pre 6 year olds he or she can not control and just turns them loose under foot. I’ll have to pay by give up one of the twins to park miles away and the yellow bus will be close and free.

    Maker Faire just gets better and better. An Education Day is an awesome idea! Future “makers” are in every elementary classroom everywhere. My husband is a member of the Bay Area Lego User Group and they will be one of the ‘makers’ again this year. I can’t wait!

    The students pictured had an awesome project:
    .. it’s a wonderful application of the theories in the books to real life.

    (I was lucky enough to be in the booth behind them)

    @not happy – If you read more carefully, you’ll notice the Education Day is Friday, the day before the Faire proper starts. It’s also planned activities for supervised kids, middle-school age and up. Chill.

    @not happy – please read the entire post before pooping on something we spent a lot of time and effort on, as patti said – it’s the day before.

    (thanks pattiS).
