Today I'm blogging from Southern Utah Code Camp. It's a hack-a-thon were programmers gather to launch a product in 24-hours. This is my absolute favorite Extension program, I look forward to it every November. I love to see the collaboration between professionals and rookie 4-H members who are learning the ropes. This year we had over 280 registrants...participation has doubled every year since 2010. We're running out of room and that's a great problem to have considering the national computer science education crisis.
In other news, I was recently invited to contribute to the National 4-H Council's Professional Blog each month. Here are links to my posts I've written about innovation:
August: Innovation Starts with You
September: You’ve Got Time for That
October: Put Yourself in the Flow of Relevant Information with Google Alerts
November: The Key to Productive Meetings
I was also asked to write for the Extension Reconsidered Blog, I wrote this post about my experience on USU Extension's Visioning Team: University Extension and the next generation: Innovate, or wait and react?
In addition to writing, I've been making a few videos.
What's Up Down South Economic Summit
4-H Mountain Biking Club
My next project is creating a video about Code Camp and I'm giving myself 12 more hours to complete it. Wish me luck.
