Hello from the Calgary Maker Bus

Hello,

My name is Jim, I have built the Calgary Maker Bus (not the first maker bus in the world, but hopefully interesting just the same). The point of my bus is to be a mobile educational platform that teaches kids Electronics, Robotics, Fabrication, Art and Design thinking!

Its a fun project, and much of the information was gathered from this forum. I am putting together a website to explain the bus:
https://jimakeson.wordpress.com/category/the-maker-bus/

I hope what I have learned is helpful for others. My next project will hopefully be a city bus conversion.

Thanks for all the help.


-Jim
