I showed it off at the high school where I teach math and am working pushing for STEAM education. Then, I took it down to her and she wore it for the day at the elementary school where she teaches art. We’ll let’s just say the little kids loved it!! So far she’s just had the stock Space Invaders code. However, tonight I whipped up some Tetris for her and have a Pacman version just about finished.

I prepped a little box for it Friday after school but didn’t get enough time to print it before I left. Maybe tomorrow I’ll print it out just to see if I like the idea. Here’s the Tetris version….
