Hi everyone! Thanks so much for spreading the word.  We're closing in on 200 backers and $10,000 thanks to your help!

We've spent the past week running workshops for students (over 130 so far!).  We had a blast and so did our new "Sparkees." Here are some pictures and postcards we got from the students after running the workshops.

      Ah, yes, and the text of the letter if you're having a hard time reading it in the picture:

      Dear SparkLab,
      The reason I write this letter is, that I really think that those motors are really fascinating and I think you had to work hard to get those. I thank you for coming over to our school for having so much fun building those cool, awesome, and epic robots. It was so a nice feeling to see a-self-created-robot that I built.
      CRASH!
