Today we made Bristlebots!  Our adult reference librarian Garrett first introduced Bristlebots to the library and now we're giving it a go in PNG!

It was a lot of fun teaching the kids about batteries and how to complete an electronic circuit!

If you want to give it a go yourself, check out the source!

Re-introduction to Photoshop

Today we got the students reacquainted with Photoshop and down below you'll see a sneak preview of one of our first big projects.  It's going to be a lot more involved but it involves printing photos, tracing them, scanning them and then using the computer to re-colorize them.  The end result should be pretty sweet.

We're getting PNG Fall started right!
