I spent most of yesterday at a local film festival promoting my science website with a display of various models I had which could be projects for students. Among the models were mousetrap cars, solar cars, rubberband powered cars, water rockets, foam gliders, and electric motors. To bring more people to my booth I flew a really lightweight radio control plane over everyone. A lot of good questions and people seemed interested, I wasn't selling anything, just handing out cards for my website. My hope is to generate interest from schools to do workshops but only one person from a school inquired about the possibility. It was really fun and plan to do more this.
