The RoboGuts™ S.T.E.A.M. Education Program
Give a child a toy, they're happy for an hour. Teach a child to build their own toys and they're happy for life!
I've seen some parents complain about the costs of STEM education programs in schools and how the various projects are robots that keep falling apart over and over so that the children spend too much time with assembly and re-assembly and not learning real STEM.
The RoboGuts™ S.T.E.A.M. Education Program makes learning basic electronics and programming easier, more fun and much more affordable than any other STEM education program.
The RoboGuts™ S.T.E.A.M. Education Program focuses the student on learning basic electronics by making circuits, then testing the circuit with a computer program to learn about various electronic components and structured programming to test and control those components.
The RoboGuts™ S.T.E.A.M. Education Program includes opportunities for students to learn about 3D printing as well as learning about phonemes to teach their projects to talk and sing in any language.
The RoboGuts™ circuit board was designed to be a smaller and much smarter bread board than any other MCU (Micro Controller Unit) board available so that it will fit into smaller places and connect to many common off the shelf hobby components without needing special wiring.
I don't have enough prototype boards to start selling to customers and I don't want to sell the older prototype boards or even the fewer final test boards that I have because I'm giving them to teachers that want to show the RoboGuts™ S.T.E.A.M. Education Program to their education boards to show them it is much more affordable.
With pre-sales I can place an order from the factory to get a "batch" price thus lowering the cost/RoboGuts™ circuit boards so that they become affordable to the most economically challenged children.
Once you get your RoboGuts™ circuit board you will be able to take advantage of the webpage lessons and find the links to more affordable components for all the lessons.
If there are not enough funds to cover the initial batch of RoboGuts™ circuit boards, I will use that money towards buying the first batch as soon as I can save up the remainder needed. I highly recommend everybody pitch for two or more RoboGuts™ circuit boards. Believe me, you'll want them.
