    Hi Ken, Thanks so much for your comments and questions. It is a bit of a rough guide for now but there are some resources available:Our github page theorecally can be a forum for comments/support on the program (hopefully more will use later). There is lots of raspberry pi support (https://www.canakit.com/quick-start/pi) or (https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/raspb... and other places online. For the specific questions -1. you don't need a separate computer at all for the project (just a monitor for the raspberry pi). it may be easier to look at the videos on a regular computer but it's not necessary. 2. to save the movies you can either load them on a thumb drive through the pi or drag/drop them into a google folderAlso just reach out if you have any questions to ryan@wonder...

    thanks! it's not so simple too make, but a great combination of woodworking/electronics/computational skills! and once its up and running students can get going fast with amazing creations!

    yay thanks! and if you want to start with a more approachable electronics project, you can try out circuit boards from Tinkering Studio: (https://www.exploratorium.edu/sites/default/files/... or our motion machines guide: https://www.instructables.com/id/Motion-Machines/

    The Amazing Bucket Stool!

    Super cool! I would love to see pictures of all the different variations the girls come up with : )

    Nice! Those sound like really good additions. I especiallylike the elastic cover idea.

    Hmm, Maybe vinyl for the seat cover? Glitter vinyl!

    If you are lucky, you can get it cut at the store, but for sure an electric carving knife is an excellent tool. A bandsaw works really well, too!
