HacKidemia is a global organization that runs hands-on STEM workshops for kids in more than 25 countries around the world with 8000 children and 400 mentors. They were asked to bring the project to Africa and launched an indiegogo campaign two months ago: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/afrimakers. The main intention is to enable African makers -- kids in particular -- to use making and prototyping for solving local challenges like access to clean water, energy and information. SparkFun has donated the materials for 7 maker boxes - enough to support the initial campaign goal to equip each of the 7 hubs with a set of Arduino's, sensors, books, and tools.
I think this is the most we have posted, ever? 25 new products!
