Posted on Posted in Blog

While at the Bursa AstroFest (which I wrote a post here) I had the chance to meet two teachers who had come from a tiny village school from the small city of Kahramanmaraş.

My Makerbot is here! (kind of)

A few months ago I had won the MakerEd Challenge and as a prize I earned a Makerbot Replicator 5th Gen. After quite a bit of time trying to get it to Turkey, it is finally here, kind of. Of course it got stuck in the customs. And worse news, I get a free prize, […]
