Tomorrow marks the 1 week mark of our successful Kickstarter campaign! We can't believe how fast time has flown! Similar to our campaign, we have had a pretty diverse group of pre-orders. Our team can't wait for our Pi-Bot to go global!
So what have we been up to? Well, the post-campaign life is actually busier than the during-campaign life (be ready for any of you out there running your own crowd-funding set-up!) Our team has been working to finalize all components for our 1300+ orders. The focus for the last week has been hardware & production along with communications wrapping up the campaign. Gearboxes are currently ready to go and STEM Boards are on their way. We just got confirmation that our STEM Boards will definitely be equipped with micro-USB port for data connection (one of my personal favorite parts of the board as I can carry one wire around with me to charge my phone and Kindle too :)
*****Note: As with all start-up production efforts, things are subject to change till the official transaction goes through. We are "confirmed"...but we'll still see!*****
Interesting Fact of the Week:
Saturday, April 12th marked the groundbreaking of the UC Berkeley Jacobs Hall Institute of Design Innovation. At this exciting event, STEM Center USA's co-founder Lavanya Jawaharlal spoke alongside Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks and Executive Chairman of Qualcomm Dr. Paul Jacobs about the importance of STEM and engineering education!
