Hi, I'm an Australian Science & technology enthusiast and I've been working with a group of 4 clever kids (ages 10-11) on a project called TTD - Toddler Tracking Device. It uses two sets of Flora, Ultimate GPS, Buzzer and a Transceiver antenna. A lot of art and craft went into making the bag and hat.

It was a long journey (4.5 months!) of working every weekend and eventually also every night, but it's finally completed and we presented it in a national technology competition for kids. We won 3rd prize overcoming dozens of the best schools in Australia. Very proud!

Here is a short video of the kids presenting their project: https://youtu.be/kgixcMpWqzQ
This second video demonstrates the technology in more details (it was made 2 months ago when the project was still in development stages): https://youtu.be/K5oEO2MmD-Y



Thank you Adafruit! Couldn't have done it without your cool products and your great support. Keep making cool technologies and make the world a better place! :-)
