    Hello everyone
    I am the committee Chair for a Boy Scout Troop in Oswego IL.

    We are asking for your support, what we would like is either a small to medium CNC machine kit, Laser Cutter or 3D printer Kit.

    They will be used to teach our youth about them, what they can do, why they do it and what they can do for their future.
    Their future is something we feel real strong about, most schools today do not teach our youth how to do this stuff which means they have little to no skills when coming into the work place.
    We are trying to show them there is more then flipping burgers out there and that if they work hard they can earn more and get meaningful jobs right out of school.
    We are also looking for Engineers that would like to come and talk to our young men about their job and what it takes to become an Engineer in this day and age.
    We are a Non For Profit Origination and with your help we can do this.

    Good luck on finding what you want. I live in Elgin, Illinois and I work as a manufacturing engineer.

    Here fairly cost CNC project (<$400) the boys could build with the adult supervision. Most of the prints are available at hardware store and with a 3D printer (check with some local libraries, they might have one available) or the a kit can be purchased from the designer. Fundraising might help to make this reality. The MPCNC (Mostly Printed CNC) project would give the boys a little bit of everything from engineering to assembly, and manufacturing. You might be able to work in a few merit badges in the process of building this project.
