      Sacramento Day 1

      April 11, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 54 °F

      Today was lift off! Pun intended.

      What a way to kick off the trip. My colleague Hannah (co-founder of the curriculum platform we acquired) came into town for the week to help with the “presentation” of the van and the full experience for teachers.

      Our first demo was in Elk Grove Unified, 5th largest district in California. After spending the morning prepping the van, fixing audio issues, getting last minute supplies…we hit the road for our first demo.

      What a thrill it was. After a couple of hiccups with set up, the wind, etc, we had a group of teachers rockin with the presentation - they were going through each mission (albeit a little hesitant to participate at first) and loving using the product.

      This made me feel so much better. It was the first time I had seen the experience in action with educators. We came up with a list of modifications to help things run smooth, but damn was that exhilarating. I have nothing but positive thoughts on how well this will get crafted in the long term.

      This district has already purchased some STEM products from us but is now interested in a bigger solution for their school. That was promising.

      My head is in the right place. I’m feeling so much more confident about the experience. I’m excited for the road trip and all the incredible people I plan to meet along the way. This is the beginning of a crazy journey. It’s going to be good for me both mentally and physically and allow me to spend time truly focused on my craft.

      If anything, this app will serve as a way for me to gather my thoughts and I’ll be able to look back on it and reflect on the trials and tribulations of this trip. In true Braydon fashion, I must say, “Let’s gettttt it.”
