Artifice is a youth hackerspace in Woodlawn that was "bootstrapped" into existence with donated space, time, and materials last December. Now, we have some amazingly curious students, but we're still working on our budget. (We were ruled tax-exempt this summer, which is great, but we haven't had a chance to put that letter to work yet.)
The following are some examples of purchases that would instantly improve the opportunities that we offer Artificers:
- 3D printer and matrix
- E-textile materials
- Robots (Sparki and Magician bots)
- Raspberry Pi with LCD screen
- "300 in 1" electronics kits
- Guidebooks (Python for Kids, Arduino for Beginners, etc.)
- wearable tech components
- and a robotic arm would be awesome!
All told, we are hoping to raise $5,000 for our equipment budget and we could absolutely put those grant prizes to good use. Can you help by donating or spreading the word?
Our mamas raised us right, so we will thank all (consenting) donors on our website and, for major donors, figure out some other cool ways to commemorate your generosity.
