In yesterday's development call, I gave a rambling explanation of something I've been thinking a lot about:
OpenROV Classes in Makerspaces
Here's what I was thinking: working with makerspaces or a specific member of a makerspace to organize an OpenROV Class/Build. It could be one weekend. Or two weekends. Or one night a week for a month. But we offer the teacher 5 OpenROVs at a discounted rate, and they are able to charge for the class, say $1k total, to cover their time and the OpenROV components.
This would be a great maker education project for someone who is new to making, as well as a good way to make a little money on the side for someone who works at a makerspace. It will also be a great way to start building more local OpenROV communities.
What do you think? Any makerspace operators out there want to pilot this with us?
