|BPC Maker Club at our 3DPW booth!|
We left after lunch on Thursday and flew down to Burbank just in time for the opening reception. The 8th grade boys did enjoy the fancy, open buffet!
Friday morning, we were in the elevator, heading down to the Expo floor, when we ran into John Westrum, from Afinia**. He was the vendor that was speaking at the seminar "Enhancing Education Curriculum Through 3D Printing." John is somewhat familiar with our work, having run into Ms. Mytko at a number of previous conferences, and was very excited to see up there. Then he very generously offered to shorten his presentation and give us half his time slot to speak at the seminar. We were happy to oblige.

Some of us went to seminars occasionally, but mostly we hung out at our booth and talked... and talked. And networked with big companies. We will write more about our Expo floor adventures soon!
