We’re excited to announce of first electronics kit donation/sponsorship, courtesy of the the really cool girls and guys at SparkFun.
I buy almost all my electronics kit from SparkFun and a few weeks back, I reached out them asking if they could subsidize prices for us or if they had a philanthropic arm. It turns out they do have an Education Outreach Department that caters to projects and initiatives like Fundi Bots.
They graciously accepted to send us three SparkFun Inventor’s Kits (Arduino based), plus two CDs of software, well written and documented teacher’s guides and assorted learning material. Actual monetary value is north of $450 dollars (computed cost of purchase and shipping). Fundi Bots value: Priceless.
We’ll definitely be using the learning and teaching material extensively in our school outreach program, and internally as well, since the material is that good. See photos below for details.
Thank you SparkFun, you guys R.O.C.K all sorts of awesome.
