We are really passionate about STEM Education, and so we wanted to give away one unassembled Death Star ($600 reward level) to one lucky school anywhere in the world Sept 1, 2019. Just vote every 12 hours for your favorite school. Your school will receive a full scale (100 mm diameter) 3D printed Death Star sphere, unpopulated PCB, and all the integrated circuits / electronics that go with it. Assembly of all the parts could make a great semester long extra credit lab, and Blaze Sanders (DSiS Chief Designer) would love to web conference in once a week to answer any questions.
***Please give us up to 24 hours to add your school to the list***
