Here is one of the quieter moments at The T-Exchange stand.
This year the Festival Family Day was busier than ever with over 1,800 visitors of all ages. Perhaps one of the most popular offerings was the three Organic Orchestra instruments; The Carrotene (piano), the Percolator (drums) and the Rhubarbium (tubular bells). As full volume from the three 200Watt amplifiers was a bit much for the older adults the volume controls were regularly turned down, only to be turned up again, after a little while, by younger adults… As these instruments appear to work by magic, explaining the function was a challenge.
The more academic visitors quickly moved on to the Coder Dojo and Code Club section, where a lot of concentration went into code design, the graphical programming language ‘Scratch’ and other teaching technology.
An ‘Ender 3’ 3D printer was demonstrating how to print “Smoothies” for blowing bubbles inside bigger bubbles. These were a small part of the entertaining performance by highly skilled bubble maker Philip Noble at the next activity.
Most importantly, The T-Exchange stand was well supported by members with 11 taking part, including 3 Juniors.
What a GREAT Fun Day!
