Evolution Notes

  • Once the video instructionals for the STEAM Camp are perfected, then the Remote Participation option becomes much more attractive. Both on-site and remote people should be watching the instructional videos for the builds instead of listening to the instructor - the instructor is there only for clarification. Video person attends and works on inserting the clarifications into the videos for future events.
  • Another future product could be video collections. Otherwise, all video is published freely.
