Due to a lack of Crowdsourcing experience and an unreachable goal, The BE High School Tech Club Kickstarter was unsuccessful. Of our 1000$ goal, we raised 286$. With 6 days to go, it is not going to happen. But thanks to all who donated! DIYDrones was our single biggest supporter, at 43% by pledge amount.
We realize that in retrospect the major issue our campaign faced was the all-or-nothing funding system used by Kickstarter. Our club is not an all-or nothing type of thing, and so this did not fit our needs. Live and Learn!
To remedy this issue, we have relaunched the campaign on IndeGoGo, which uses a flexible funding system. In addition, out goal has been lowered to 500$.

Thanks for the Support and sorry for the confusion,
PS: Another member suggested to me that we could accept old gear. For Sure! If you would rather donate old parts and things, that would be awesome! send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
