On to something good here....
Just received another $1000 contribution and a note that really brings out the essence of the DuinoKit project.
I think you have a good thing here.
As I remember my start in electronics was being given a gift of some RadioShack P-Box kits and a 100 in 1 Electronic projects kit. I still remember getting my first computer kit also a Netronics ELF II.
I went on to learn electronics in a Vocational school. I got my first job for a Mini Computer company a few months before I actually graduated, and started the first Monday after Graduation. That was in 1979 and I believe that today kids are not taught at the lowest level of electronics anymore and miss out on a lot.
I've decide I will donate at the $1000 level and hope that helps a little.
I cannot thank you (my supporters) enough for the encouragement and pledges made for this project. I wish I could place at least 3 or 4 kits in every school or club. I am currently in Minnesota right now and scheduled to see the Bakken museum (See update #8) where the DuinoKit will be used in their Inventors Club program. I hope this will become much larger than just a one-time creation.
Thank you for "circling around" this bright idea! - Dan
