Twenty students from Tukwila-based Key Tech Labs – a nonprofit that aims to build self-sustaining communities by equipping minorities with skills in STEM – recently spent the day at Google’s Fremont campus building and coding raspberry pi.

Tanisha Hampden, a Key Tech Labs volunteer, and a Google Volunteer help students build their first Sprite in Scratch Programming.

State Representative Noel Frame introduces Raspberry Pi Day, with a message emphasizing the importance of technology in today’s classrooms.

All participants had varying levels of experience using the Raspberry Pi and programming. The students who were new to the technology were very engaged and excited to take on tasks. The students who had some experience were able to freshen up their skills and help out the younger kids.

The event included a raffle which had students on the edge of their seats. Five students were drawn from the raffle and were presented with the entire computer set up that was built during class. The set up included the Raspberry Pi, monitor, key board, mouse, and auxiliary components.

After the class, Google mentors gave a tour of their campus, during which most students took pictures or live-streamed.

Why struggle through heavy traffic driving south into Oregon and then scramble trying to find a viewing spot – to say nothing of possible food and gasoline shortages while there – for Monday’s historic solar eclipse?

Stay close to home and watch it at the Museum of Flight, located at Boeing Field (9404 E. Marginal Way S. in Tukwila; Exit 158 off I-5).

The museum and NASA are partnering for a free public event to watch the first total solar eclipse over the entire U.S. in 99 years. The first 1,000 visitors to the museum will receive ISO-certified safe, NASA-branded glasses for watching the eclipse.

Museum educators and NASA representatives will guide the public through the solar event from the museum lawn between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. The outdoor viewing and commentary are free.

And NASA’s Gulfstream III science aircraft is based at the museum this weekend for an airborne science mission to observe the eclipse. The plane will make observations of the solar event high over Oregon during the 10:12 a.m. total eclipse,

The aircraft is outfitted to conduct high-altitude observations of the total solar eclipse over Oregon, as part of the its comprehensive study of the event from land, air and space.

NASA’s Eclipse MegaCast live coverage of the event will be shown in the museum’s theater from 9 to 10:45 a.m. Viewing is free with admission to the Museum.
During eclipse coverage, Randy Albertson, the project manager for airborne science at NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center in California, will be available at the museum to answer questions from the public about the airborne science aircraft being used to capture the eclipse.

Note: Museum staff remind the public that the only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as both “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers that are certified to meet safety standards ISO 12312-2. Four companies have those standards: Rainbow Symphony, American Paper Optics, Thousand Oaks Optical and TSE 17.

On Friday, July 14, Multiple King County Police Agencies (Auburn, Kent, Renton, and Tukwila) in collaboration with Washington State Troopers created a multi-agency task force that participated in an illegal street racing enforcement emphasis.

The enforcement emphasis was a result of safety concerns from citizens and businesses. The illegal street racing events have led to serious injury collisions, property damage to private businesses, multiple fights, shootings, stabbings and various other criminal activities.

Officers with assistance from King County Sheriff’s Air Support Unit located and contacted large groups of individual’s street racing and attending street races in multiple cities throughout King County. The following enforcement actions are part of what was taken at the emphasis.

  • 40 were arrested for unlawful race attendance
  • 3 were arrested for street racing
  • 1 arrest for minor in possession
  • 1 arrested for an outstanding warrant
  • 1 stolen vehicle was recovered
  • 1 stolen vehicle fled from officers and was not apprehended
  • Multiple traffic infractions and warnings were given to those in attendance at the races

Agencies plan to continue working together towards the mutual goal of traffic safety in 2017.

WSP and all allied agencies would like to remind everyone of the dangers of street racing. Not only to those involved in racing, but also the attendees and general public as well.

The Seattle Southside RTA Visitor’s Center was first opened in Feb., 2014.

The Seattle Southside Regional Tourism Authority (RTA), the official destination marketing organization for the cities of Tukwila, SeaTac and Des Moines, on Friday (July 21) announced the closing of its Visitor Center kiosk at Westfield Southcenter Mall.

On July 13, the Seattle Southside Board of Directors determined that – due to a reduction in funding – it was necessary to close the Westfield Southcenter branch of the RTA’s Visitor Center.

The closure of the Westfield Southcenter location – which has been operating since Feb., 2014 – is effective immediately. The SeaTac Visitor Center, located at 3100 S. 176th Street, will remain open and continue to service visitors, sell tickets, and promote area shopping, dining, attractions and hotels.

“This decision was not made lightly, as it has affected not only the region, but has led to the position eliminations of three valued visitor center concierges,” said Maureen Huffman, Seattle Southside RTA board chair. “We are working closely with Westfield Southcenter management to determine potential partnerships that could provide visitor information services at a reduced cost.”

Seattle Southside RTA continues to support tourism through advocacy and innovative services such as a newly revamped website with advanced trip planning functionality, marketing excellence and developing the economic strength of the region.
