We are so excited to have been selected for an exhibit at the TEDx Arena Circle in Loveland, CO! Honestly, we were excited when the TED representative stopped by our booth at STEAM Fest. We were more excited when he came back by later. You can imagine how thrilled we were when he contacted us and told us he wanted us to be at the event. Mostly we’ll be play testing again and have examples of the previous iterations of the design. I’ll write up a review on that for next week. It’s going to be a pretty amazing day.
We have also been asked to attend STEM Week at Aspen Creek K-8 in Broomfield. This event is especially dear to us as we want HyPars to be more than just a building toy. Our dream is to see them used in schools and home school class rooms to teach creativity, problem solving and math skills. This might be a step toward that, but either way, it’s always a blast to see kids with the toys. They come up with the coolest, craziest structures.
Our to-do list this week includes weighing kits to enter shipping costs into our online store, building a pvc display stand for our banner and finding a place to build a shipping area in our basement. You’re getting in on the grassroots movement here! It really doesn’t get much better than this. I hope that someday we’ll look back on these days fondly (“Remember when we were shipping out of the basement?”). We’re still looking good for our first round of parts to arrive end of October / early November, but I’ll keep you posted.
Lots more to come.
Come see us (and all of the other amazing things) at TEDx Arena Circle!
Keep it curvy!
