Qualities I admire

maker philosophy ...do-it- yourself, hands-on, self- moderated learning curve, dreative

accessibile... inexpensive hardware, open source software, project for people in marginal circumstances team work specifics for each project TEAM I & TEAM II

TEAM I members on project that records photos, videos, narratives
TEAM II members on project that is RPi based (e.g. programming led to turn on and off)
i.e. both teams are doing and learning at same time about one another while collaborating
