The proceeds of the Kickstarter will also be used to fund an engineering workshop for low-income girls!

    Way cool - I love that there's an outreach portion of the project to bring access to this kind of hands-on tech learning. More schools should have Arduinos, Raspberry Pis, Max classes - I think it could really help close the gender gap in fields like engineering.
