Revamp Camp

Revamp Camp was a collaboration between Ithaca Generator makerspace and Xraise outreach from the Laboratory for Elementary-Particle Physics at Cornell. After learning some Arduino basics the campers took off on their own individual projects, with spectacular results! Here are some photos of our campers and their mentors over the course of the action packed week.
