To our Awesome Pi-Bot Supporters,

WE ARE ALMOST THERE! Today has been our third best day on the campaign and we are just 2K away from our goal. We are working hard to push our campaign above and beyond so we can release some stretch goals to you tomorrow!

Thank you for helping us get here and thank you for continuing to share our campaign. We still have 7 days left so please keep spreading the word as we promote hands-on, robotics education worldwide through our Pi-Bot!

Backer Love

We have an extremely diverse backer group, and we have enjoyed hearing from you. If you'd like, we'd love to hear where you are from and what you do so we can show some backer love! 

Your support means the world to us and all the beneficiaries of this project! Thank you - we're almost there!  

Much love,

Lavanya and Melissa

      @Michele - I know I would have loved to have a Pi-Bot for my 13th birthday :) Love the support from lovely Alaska; thank you!
      @Filip - So excited to see how the Pi-Bots fit in with your fablab and weekend CoderDojos! Thanks for your ongoing support from one of the most beautiful countries I've seen!
      @Raymond - Sounds like such a great idea...our own FLL graduates worked on some of our prototypes (7th and 10th graders) :)

      I'm excited about science and knowledge. I'm 61 and love to learn, my son is 5 (yes, 5) and he has the desire to learn from his mother, me and this wonderful world we live in. Thank You for your quest, drive and desire to explore and share with us. John, Olivia and Brian. April - 3rd -2014.

      I'm going to buy two more to start a mini endowment for Alum of my FLL teams. These are the perfect next step.

      I've bought a few already as a test. Since I'm starting up a fablab and during the weekends run a CoderDojo, I'd love to integrate them in it. These robots look like THE best starting point for further development. Love your project. And it's great to see that you reached the goal!! Congratulations.

      We live on an isolated island in beautiful Southeast Alaska. The pi-bot is for my daughter's 13 birthday. She's very excited!

      I am planning on building two pi-bots with my daughter. I am so excited to she what she will do.
