One of the aims of the Kickstarter was to be able to offer the Tempus Fugit WordClock as a sensibly priced kit for schools and electronics clubs. This could range from a basic kit build to learn/improve soldering skills, to providing pupils with a ready build card without a processor and then asking them to research and select a suitable processor card. This would be a good example of applying an abstraction process to a real world problem [part of the UK key stage 3 curriculum].
I am also happy to provide part built boards, to make the kits more accessible to children / adults with more limited soldering skills. Please email me if this is something you are interested in.
