This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines/
3D printing is important because of its ability to transform consumerism. The MOREbot 3D-printed robot ecosystem empowers people to build their own goods and celebrates the idea of unprecedented customization. MOREbot is an expandable and modular STEM learning robotic ecosystem. All robot parts are 3D printed (and can be 3D printed at home), so it’s also incredibly affordable! Not only that, but MOREbot is the only system to provide a clear path for beginners to become experts in coding, 3D printing and electronics.
MOREbot is a fraction of the cost of leading competitors, all while offering greater customization and deeper learning outcomes because almost all of the parts are 3D printed and snap together with wooden dowels. 3D printing makes our robots the only ones you can create and not just consume. We teach 3D printing because we want you to learn how to create a robot, not just assemble one. MOREbot teaches valuable tech skills, like coding, 3D printing, and electronics, using the Arduino platform. But MORE importantly, it prepares the maker to adapt to a fast-changing world by teaching skills like problem solving and design thinking.
As of April 3rd, this project has raised $12,500 of their $20,000 goal. This project has 18 days left to raise the $20,000 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $20, you will get a one year subscription to Makerplace. For a pledge of $85, you will get one MOREbot base robot.
