MAKE does a high schooler good!

We sent David Veloz, Jr., a Navy engineer at Port Hueneme, 29 copies of MAKE a few months back. He volunteers as a facilitator for a high school outreach program for students with an interest in science and engineering. Here’s his note back with a great pic of the students holding MAKE Volume 19.

Here is a photo of the kids and their magazines. They were impressed with them, and I was surprised some hadn’t heard of MAKE. I talked to them about the article, “A Feel for Engineering” and how passion should drive them in what they choose for their career. We talked about the aerial drones and drew a quick sketch of “Makey” on Google’s Sketchup.

I passed out a couple of $2 multimeters and went over circuit layout, analysis, and even put together a simple LED circuit. There were a lot of smart kids with great potential; it’s good that we can talk to them, and rally them on. So thank you for your part and what MAKE does.

You can still pick up a copy of MAKE Volume 19 and other back issues of MAKE in the Maker Shed.
