Well, Give and Local Louisville has come and gone. Funds were raised; things were burned; videos were made.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to give. We had as many as 640 viewers at any one time on our live stream as we burnt everything from Marshmallows to electronics. We raised $1,095 thanks to all of you!
Over the summer, member Divinity Rose coached a team of Junior Achievers as they worked to develop their technology based product and startup "Sensor Buddies." The team was being paid as part of the Mayor's Summer Works program that employed 4200 youth over the summer. The team of three 17-year-old students from Central High School learned to solder and use many of our resources, including the wood shop, vinyl cutter, and laser cutter.
Their experiences at Lvl 1 facilitated growth, confidence building, and creative problem solving; it was so inspiring to see each of their individual strengths blossom. You can see their summary of the summer in the video below.
We look forward to seeing what they accomplish this year as senior in the business magnet program at Central High School with their teacher Dana Kelly. Thank you Mayor Fischer for facilitating such a great program.
Some of our Makers were on Great Day Live today to show off some of our projects to promote Sharefest - which we will be at Sunday April 10 from noon to 5 pm. at Highlands Community Campus
