i have been asked to participate on the Board for a new startup with the mission to found a Science and Engineering Museum to Pensacola. the initiative is headed up the researchers Dr. Megan Pratt and Dr. Jerry Pratt from the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) and they reached out to our nascent makers club ECCM to see if we want to do something with this summer's programming atMESS Hall. MESS Hall has an innovative plan to mix up the usually button pushing exhibits with real hands on project based learning modules. called a MESS kit, they are mostly designed to be low cost kits which includes a booklet with a challenge and then a step-by-step guide if you get stuck. Jerry cam to our Makers Group this past Saturday and the members of the ECCM are busily plotting a program for one session this summer.
