This just arrived in my inbox. If you know a Vancouver teen with a yen for hacking the homestead, let them know today!

Just a heads-up that there are places (and scholarships) still available for VIVO’s “Hacking The Home” youth camp next week (Mon-Thurs 9am-4pm & Fri 9am-6pm). This is a week of hands-on learning about physical computing and interactive electronics for young hackers aged 13-18.

You can find out more at

If interested, please phone Megan at VIVO directly during business hours on Friday as she will not be around on the weekend. Her number is 604 872 8337 (ext.5).

Our own MakerMobile mad physicist, Simon Lyons, will be one of the instructors!

It would be a shame for the scholarships to go unclaimed, so please forward to any deserving kids you can think of ASAP.
