Wyolum Article

A while back when we wanted to start developing RoboBrrd into more of a kit version, we received a grant from Wyolum. There’s a great article featuring Justin Shaw describing more about Wyolum, Open Source Hardware, and STEM.

One of our favourite parts of the article:

Our stated mission is to “promote Open Hardware.” Many small projects are out there that need only a small financial nudge to succeed. The grants are too small to pay anyone’s salary, but are large enough to buy hardware, or print circuit boards, or to purchase tools. The grant winners actually end up making the much larger investment of time. While not limited to students, all of the grant winners so far have been college or graduate students. The Open Hardware vocabulary grows with each successful design, so we all benefit from their success.
