life is a rum go guv’nor, and that’s the truth

Cache Makers!

In October of 2013, Kevin Reeve and I put our head together and started a youth maker club called Cache Makers. Since they we have learned a lot and had a lot of fun. The youth are amazing and the tech is great fun! We have received a lot of support from the community through volunteer adult mentors, donations of equipment and money, and invitations to come visit. Thanks!

Here is video that UEN recently produced about Cache Makers:

The Cache Makers flickr page also can give you an idea of what we have been up to.

Here is a story that Utah Public Radio ran on Cache Makers a while back.

In the past year we have received a lot of interest and support. Recently we received a 3 year grant from the Department of Workforce Services to expand the program to reach 1000 youth. Very exciting! As part of that we are moving to a new larger space. We are also hiring a program coordinator and multiple assistants.
