Local Wilmington NC teachers (well really Pender county) are using the website Kickstarter to ask for funding for various technology projects (video game lab) they are doing in schools. I think this is an excellent way to inform the public about what projects we are doing and gives them the opportunity to support various projects in our schools. The website is kickstarter, check it out. To get to the local projects I am speaking of from West Pender Middle’s potential video game lab, visit the Kickstarter page at kickstarter.com/discover. Then, type “Warrior Gaming Lair” in the search field.
Here is a recent newspaper article about the programs in my area asking for funding: http://www.starnewsonline.com/article/20120623/ARTICLES/120629866/1177?p=1&tc=pg&tc=ar
