I am the owner/president of a newly formed Fab Lab / Makerspace. We recently obtained the official 501©(3) designation from the IRS in April of this year and we are currently in the process of opening soon.
I am interested in a Maslow CNC for a variety of different reasons. A CNC machine would allow our students and members to bring their ideas to reality! We would love to have a Maslow CNC machine as demonstrates an extremely unique concept to the current status quo, uses a lot of off-the-shelf parts, and uses open-source software. We are brand new charitable organization, as such, I was wondering if Maslow CNC offers any discounts or incentives.
With over 1,000,000 individuals in the Fort Smith area, our mission is to be the primary location in our community where artists, designers, and inventors (regardless of age or experience) are able to learn and expand their knowledge using new technologies in a fun, exciting and supportive environment.
There is a need in the surrounding areas for fun and educational STEM resources. These resources teach students how to use a variety of different technologies they may not have had exposure to otherwise. The STEM activities they have for different grades are not accessible to everyone since the equipment is located at each school. There is a large amount of local home-schooled students who are at even more of a disadvantage since they generally do not have access to any equipment.
