Instructables Club for School? Answered

Hey everyone, I am in high school, and I was just thinking it would be quite fun to have an Instructables club in our high school. I was just wondering if I have permission from the Instructables staff to start a club, because of all the copywright and whatnot. I was thinking of having annual contests, and the winners could get an Instructables Leatherman or something like that. I was also thinking of having the joined users from my school make a group to gather all of our ideas. Maybe the contestant in the contests could join our group and submit their Instructable, and the leaders of our club could decide a winner. Is this is good idea? And do I have permission? Suggestions are always welcome! Oh yea, when everyone sees use walking around in Robot-T-shirts, who wouldn't want to join? -Thanks -Brennn10

You're welcome to do so- we don't mind. In fact, we'll send along some stickers! Drop me a PM.

I'd love an instructables club in my school. Possible aims would be to get everyone to sign up, then collaborate in every contest.

I have an appointment with my assistant principle, and a sponsorship from my Electronics Teacher! Boo-ya Kasha!

It sounds great. Unfortunately, I know of three people at my school who might be interested, and one is a senior and graduating in three weeks, one I talk to about this stuff anyway, and the other is me. it wouldn't be worth it at my school.

How about a tub where when people have something that they don't need, can throw in, and anyone part of the club can use to make something. EG, I have a useless floppy disk, I throw it in. someone makes a wallet with it.

How about just creating a Group for your school and otherwise using the site in the normal way? L

Yea that is what I was thinking. I am planning on rasing money to buy some neat prizes through my Altoids Chargers that I have made.

I'm a senior in college and tried a DIY club (Do it yourself) i thought it was a great idea but had a hard time doing it. ANYWAYS you could still do a sweet club but not necessarily do it with instructable site/people.
