Got/Want Skills? Seeking Volunteer Intern/Apprentices - orphans preferred Answered

We're still looking for great people for Instructables. However, there are also some internship opportunities outside Instructables from our extended community. From the illustrious Tim:

I've got several dozen projects to instructable-ize. Come help me do that here in sunny Alameda, California.
There's no pay, but you'll get all the fancy bread and kombucha you can consume and learn a few new tricks in one of the most amazing workshops in the world. The projects involve skills ranging from sewing and caring for bacterial cultures to building computer-controlled machines.

Come try it out for a week or two and see if you like it.

I'd love to, but I'm doing a rather BIG instructable, so to speak... We have an 18C stone house and its enormous garden, OK, but we want to make it auto sustainable, or off-grd, with a few improvements... lol. First off we have to have help with the roof, or live in a shower room. Basic idea is to do a house earthship style... have you any instructables on this sort of crazy project?

1. The "let's make" box at the top of the page is the search function.

2. You can browse the site by hitting the explore button, then narrowing down by Category & Channel - for instance, these projects may be useful:

I've always wondered, do you like kites?

Kiteman (author)stephenmack2015-03-26

Heh, sort of - my first forays into the internet, back in the last century, were researching for a large cross-curricular project I was putting together, to give a unifying theme to a whole cohort's lessons.

I chose kites, because they could be drawn and drawn on (art), made (technology), written about (literacy), their size and the angles of the string brought in numeracy, and the forces involved in flight brought in science.

If I recall, I even managed to bring in geography and history, as they looked at where in the world different kinds of kite came from, and how they had been used over the years.

Since people in general were advised to stay anonymous at the time (to prevent stalkers in the real world), I chose a name that went with the project.

I have also published a couple of kite-based instructables, if you have the time to trawl back through my projects.

I would KILL for a chance to become an intern at Ibles. But I'm only 14 and would need the money to fly out there. And airport security probably wouldn't let me bring all of my inventions onto the plane.....Maybe a few things like my arduino board, but nothing fancy. like a pair of pliers. or a nine volt battery. Hopefuly you guys would help me with a couple things like that ;)
