We are holding a special Kids and Teens illustration Contest Reception on Sunday, June 8th from 1 to 4pm at the Sunnyvale Heritage Park Museum.   The Technology Timeline iBook Contest has been successfully completed. We received 245 artworks total, covering 35 tasks in two themes:  Computation and Consumer Technology.   Many of the submitted artworks excel in both artist skill and illustration! Parents and children have told us that the contest was “quite a challenge” but that they all learned a lot during this process.   Now it is time to celebrate, and see if you can shine in our technology knowledge trivia game.   Even if you didn’t enter the contest, come to the reception to see creative artworks from 5-year-old, 10-year-old, or 12-year-old, and join the fun trivia games with prizes.
