It has now been a full week since we launched the SparkFun National Tour Kickstarter, a Kickstarter aimed at funding a tour across the country teaching electronics to educators in schools, libraries, and after-school programs.
Today, we want to pass on some updates. It’s been really exciting to watch the initial wave of early adopters make their donations and we offer our sincere thanks! We’re also excited to announce a couple additions to the Kickstarter backing levels (including a new t-shirt level!). Check out the video for more:
As I write this, we’ve raised just a touch over $16,000 of our $150,000 goal - so we’ve got a long ways to go, but we’re on our way! Please join us by donating or simply spreading the word to your friends. Help make electronics part of the classroom!
