Last Saturday, students and teachers participated in a Makeathon at Chemeketa Community College. This Makeathon brought together 60 students, industry professionals, and teachers from throughout the county to learn how to build and program electronic circuits. The event, sponsored by SparkFun, was an exciting all-day event that culminated with a showcase where teams presented solutions that they built together.

The event was a kick-off of a larger Innovate Yamhill initiative. The other co-sponsors for the event were Express Employment Services and Chemeketa. We are very grateful for how the entire community came together to pull of this event. More to come!
