Robotics Club

by BKByon on Sat Sep 04, 2010 10:40 am

Dear Adafruit Users,

Hi, I'm really interested in Robotics and I formed a Robotics club in my school. This club is new to my school, and people have no idea what to do. I would very much like to help them and teach them the importance of Robotics. I'm trying to teach them by Arduino Duemilanove kit.

Can you suggest anything about what I should do?

Please help me.

Thank You.

Sincerely,

Byon.

Thank You. But before I buy anything. I want to fund raise at a profitable rate. I posted another Forum named "Creating MintyBoost V3.0. It's about my plan to Fund-Raise. I would really appreciate if you help me more there. :D

For a school function, you're more likely to be able to raise significant funds by just asking for flat-out donations, or by selling "bake-sale-like" things (near zero cost, low end-user price. How about jewelery and/or sculptures made from trashed electronics parts?) Profitably selling an actual electronics product is ... harder.

Wow, this is a great idea. haha I do have some junks of broken robot. I got for a donation from one of Club members. Do you mean sculptures like gluing pieces together? Or actually building something from it.

I understood your statements in a way that I should glue machine pieces together as a sculpture. It sounded very funny to me :lol:

you may want to review MAKE's fund raising program as well.
