IEEE Baton Rouge Section


IEEE Participation at Maker Faire – Baton Rouge

The Baton Rouge section was given the honor and privilege in participating in Baton Rouge’s first Makers Faire. It brought people of all ages and different walks of life to the new EBR Parish Library facility.

Our two wonderful volunteers from Southern University, Dr. Henton and senior student Fred inspired kids, answered questions, and showed what they like to do. They had a wonderful LED display, programmed an autonomous battery-powered car, and showed off a quad-copter. The latter could not be operated for safety reasons at the facility.

In addition, the community got to see and interact with some of its IEEE members. Many hand outs were available. For more information and pictures about the event, please visit the following site:
