You might recall last month we blogged Purple Oranji’s Timesquare DIY watch kit timelapse. She’s back – this time with a timelapse and component shoutout for the MiniPOV 4 kit. It’s so great to see kids this young so engaged, enthusiastic, and aware of their maker skills! Thanks again to casper2341 for sending this in.
