It'll be nice if they allowed adults and worked with openbadges.org

I was asked to stop using the site because I'm an adult and my projects were too good. Yet they featured most that I submitted.

Haha, I've shared a few emails with them now - you can join as an adult if a child of yours has joined, but the child has to post the projects, not the parent.

They are planning on making it usable for teachers, though.
So I'm being penalized for not having offspring? I hope that business model works out for them.

Someone near me offers behaviour training for dogs. Am I being penalised for not owning a dog?
No. I'm just not the intended customer of a service that's being offered. That's all.

Since that was their intent all along, I guess it does.

I guess it doesn't stop you borrowing a friend's child to join? There's precedent for mentoring young Makers, after all.

It looks "safe & spam-proof", the bit of content I poked looked OK and the recommended app' is free.
Looks a bit "early" though.

It's more the format I'm considering, along with Caiylinsdad's suggestion of Adafruit's patches.

I disagree with tokenism, the achievement is the reward. If it's Scout-badges, you at least have something tangible which enhances the uniform, internet-gongs are intrinsically worthless. I do understand that exam-grades are an important part of your life.
