Maine Computing Careers
This video shows examples of computer programming and information technology careers in Maine. The variety of employers and applications may surprise you!
Artists & athletes, musicians & mathematicians -- all should have the opportunity to discover the fun of computer science by bringing creative robotic and electronic projects to life. Gizmo Garden supports Maine libraries, schools, and after-school programs in running gender-balanced, hands-on projects for 5th-12th graders.
Congratulations to Maine Schools
The following projects completed in spring 2018 were sponsored by Gizmo Garden.
- Edgecomb Eddy School ended the year with a splash! They assembled underwater robots, including learning to solder the control boards, and then enjoyed their creations at the swimming pool of the Boothbay YMCA.
- Oceanside High in Rockland married art and electronics to create a Kinetic Sculpture. Sensors on a rooftop weather vane send signals to a microcontroller. The microcontroller then directs motors driving gears on a feather sculpture within a skylight. The feather sculpture twists with the wind!
