Maine Robotics opens new office in Downtown Orono
ORONO – Maine Robotics has moved from its home office to new space at 30 Main Street in Orono. The tech oriented non-profit has, for the past 10 years, worked to expand the number of schools, teachers and students who participate in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) but has been limited in its growth by a lack of space.
Since opening its doors in 2004, Maine Robotics has offered the Maine FIRST LEGO League competition, the Maine Robot Track Meets, youth and adult workshops and the ever-growing summer technology camps. In the past decade, Maine Robotics has worked with over 11,500 adults, children and youth to move STEM ahead in the State of Maine. Each year sees a growth over the year before. A decade ago, 440 people were enrolled, but that number has grown to over 1,700 people this past year.

MemRise is an online learning tool that allows you to learn new languages or brush up on those you may have let fall to the wayside after high school or college. We’re talking hundreds of languages, including modern languages as well as the classics of Ancient Greek, Latin, Ancient Egyptian and Anglo Saxon (Old English).
5 ways to enhance online privacy
SAN FRANCISCO — More than half of Americans are worried about the U.S. government’s digital spies prying into their emails, texts, search requests and other online information, but few are trying to thwart the surveillance.
That’s according to a new survey from Pew Research Center, released Monday. A main reason for the inertia? Pew researchers found that a majority of those surveyed don’t know about online shields that could help boost privacy or believe it would be too difficult to avoid the government’s espionage.
Time Waster - ‘Don’t Escape 2’
There are various games that task you with trying to escape from a pixelated room of some kind. “Don’t Escape 2” is a play on that concept, but rather than trying to get out, you’re trying to ward off the hungry dead.
You and your friend Bill, who has been bitten by a zombie (and we all know what happens when you are bitten by a zombie), have found an abandoned building. You have until sunset to fortify your position. Eight hours seems like a long time, until you realize that some of the things you have to do take large chunks of that time, especially if you are doing them alone.
