Event: Crowdfund This! 1

Quelab is partnering up with the New Mexico Tech Council NMTC to do a little workshop/presentation on Crowdfunding. Proceeds go towards funding Quelab for future community events/talks/classes

Crowdfund This!
A Community Fundraiser for Quelab

Crowdfunding or micro funding, has become a popular – and useful – way of raising funds for projects of all sorts, from movies to games, hardware, organizations and more. But while thousands have joined sites like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo to help take their project to the next level, the majority of projects are still not funded.

This workshop will help run the numbers and share what it takes to develop your solid project idea into a good candidate for funding from the wider community. Bringing together experienced pros from several community organizations, you’ll learn:

· Advantages and Disadvantages of different crowdfunding platforms
· Structuring the incentives your provide to your funders
· Budgeting to account for incentives, processing and other fees
· Honing your message
· Promoting your project
· …and more

Kids in the 1930’s Didn’t have xbox. So they played with Rockets!

Lets do it again!

Hopefully to excite you about rockets(and our big event on the 30th), here is a Modern Mechanics Scan, of a article published in February 1930! Basically its about a rocket powder one could buy back then, that went into a engine tube strapped to a model airplane. (effectively a J.A.T.O./R.A.T.O)
