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.

Awesome, will do so! I will first just make sure the plan goes through with the principal. Thanks

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.

You could probably got donations from them. :D

Ha, but I am organizing this with my friend, and I just want to know ideas that we could do to make this club awesome.

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.
