Thanks to a $1000 grant from the KW Awesome Foundation, we will be conducting a pumpkin carving and learn-to-solder workshop for kids 8+.
- Mid-to-late October, 2011
Who's doing what?
co-ordinator: Doug Moen
We'll find a pumpkin farm or other vendor who is willing to bring pumpkins to the venue, sell them, and take back the unsold pumpkins. (We'd like to avoid this task ourselves.)
Pumpkin carving knives
Electronics: the "pumpkin card"
Soldering irons, solder, LEDs, etc
Budget and capacity planning
How much money are we spending per kid (cost of electronics, knife, etc)? What are the fixed costs (venue, possibly insurance)? Based on the foregoing, and a $1000 budget, how many pumpkin carvers can we support? The current rough estimate is 100 kids.
