We're excited to announce a brand new campaign for Eduponics mini v2.0! After over a year of development, we've improved upon the original and implemented many suggestions from our dear backers. We are now ready to launch the Eduponics v2.0 platform, which includes our own custom-made water-level sensor, support for 4-pin "Grove" interfaces, and a whole new extension board. In addition, this year's STEMinds products are CE and UKCA certified! Read the full update.
It's been over a year since our Eduponics campaign, but we have been continuously improving by listening to our backers. We hope to see more backers and new users find ways to be innovative around agriculture and IoT using the Eduponics Mini ESP32 platform. Read the full update.
Some of you have already received your Eduponics Mini products, and we can't wait to hear about what you'll do with our hardware! If you've ordered the Eduponics Mini kit, you probably received a leaflet that shows our new upcoming products, including the Solar UPS board. We have also created a new discussion forum and have upgraded our documentation! Read the full update.
After a delay getting all of the final shipping logistics sorted out, Eduponics products are on their way to Crowd Supply's warehouse for final distribution.

We are extremely grateful for your patience while we work to prepare your Eduponics Mini kits and deliver them in a timely matter. Between May 1st and May 6th, our partners in China will be enjoying a well-deserved Labor Day holiday. Once they return, we'll be back in the warehouse to finish testing kits and packaging them for delivery. More details below! Read the full update.
Our campaign is over and we are completely funded. (And far beyond our expectations!) We would like to thank all of our backers for their continued support, amazing questions, and belief in us. This update covers manufacturing status and next steps. Read the full update.

It's been a hell of a journey. In the past week, we've been working extra hard to ensure fulfillment time and schedule as planned. The 200 Eduponics mini PCBA arrived at us yesterday and now we are left to test each one of them using a custom QA script we've developed in order to ensure the proper functionality of each device.

Manufacturing progress on the Eduponics Mini and Extension, plus improved documentation and new software libraries. Read the full update.
Over the past two weeks, we've noticed that a lot of backers have been requesting more than a single Eduponics Mini Extension Board. Which makes sense, given that we described how one Eduponics Mini ESP32 Dev Board can support up to four extension boards. Until recently, however, a setup like that would have required additional soldering to configure the resistors that control the I²C addresses. And that, in turn, could inconvenience our users and perhaps even result in damaged boards—neither of which we want. Our solution? DIP Switches! This update covers that and other extension-board upgrades. Read the full update.
The support and feedback we've received so far have been incredible. Without our loyal backers, none of this would have been possible, so thank you! In this update, we talk a little about the feedback we've been receiving, describe some of the component-availability issues we've managed to overcome, and tease a surprise feature of our Expansion Board.

We are very excited to announce that our crowdfunding campaign has begun! We've been working on the Eduponics Mini platform for almost a year, and we can't wait to share our work (and our excitement!) with the community. We believe that Eduponics is the most-capable, highest-quality, and lowest-cost DIY smart-agriculture and IoT kit available today, and we are genuinely proud of what we've archived with it.
