The MIT Admissions Dept is making it possible for young makers to share their projects as part of the application process, starting this year. Dr. Dawn Wendell, Assistant Director of Admissions at MIT, said that a new Maker Portfolio supplement on the MIT Admissions web site will provide a structured way for students to submit information about a diverse set of projects that they have participated in.
From their site, "UW CSE's K-12 outreach program, DawgBytes, aims to introduce both students and teachers to the exciting world of computer science & engineering. Whether you are a K-12 student, a UW CSE student, a parent or an educator, we have opportunities for you! "

5590 was part of LEGO's three set line-up for their spectacular Model Team range that was launched in 1988 for US 'Shop at Home' customers, and in 1990 in European stores.
Cartoon Network recreated the Adventure Time Intro with all Lego's and it is amazing!
