Well, we've gone and done it! We've created an Indiegogo campaign to help us raise funds for new robots. As you probably know we've got a LOT of robots here at Maine Robotics. When we started we had all LEGO RCX robots. Then in 2006 and 2007 we were able to replace them with the "new" LEGO NXT robots.
Now here we are in 2014 and we are trying to replace those with the latest EV3 robots. But we need your help.
Our community expects the best equipment, and while the NXT robots are still working, and do most of what the EV3s can do, it is time to get new ones. But we need 60 of the new robots.
So We are running an Indiegogo campaign, we've got a couple of grants out there, and we are planning on purchasing some through our normal replacement program (every year we have to replace about 20% of our robots due to old age).
So would you consider helping us out? Even a few dollars is a great way to show support of the youth here in Maine who use this equipment year round. Just visit our Indiegogo Campagin and make as small or as large a donation as you can. Thanks, Maine Robotics.
