Fall 2018 Branch Meeting At The Terraces

Our fall meeting was held at the Terraces in Los Gatos.  Since this was a chance to get a photo of a large number of members, notice the new  header photo on our website home page!  The picture on the home page was cropped from this one:

We heard from each of the Interest groups, so be sure and get in touch with any you are interested in.  Refer to the Interest group main page for basic information and contacts.

We were privileged to hear from several of the Tech Trek campers  and to see one of the projects they worked on – a windmill constructed entirely from newspaper and masking tape:

And in case anyone was curious about why they used triangles,  here’s a link that explains it.

The Tech Trek girls shared a little about their experiences in the dorms and working on projects.

After taking questions from the audience, Cynthia Miller (Co-director of Tech Trek) asked the girls questions about the experience.  Louse Quenon also talked about the “Mad City Money” game they played to learn more about budgeting.

The jewelry tables are always a popular event.  The proceeds are used to help fund several projects for homeless women.
