In the shop we had over 10,000 LM324 Quad Opamps donated to us.Thank you MASSA Corp http://www.massa.com/.
Now what the h3ll do we do with 10,000 LM324. The only answer?? Design kits for exploratory students! In our school we have a program that during the first year of 9th grade each student get to tryout 8 shops for the first half of the year, then they get placed in the trade they whant to study for the next 3.5 years. It's a huge expense for our shop we see anywhere from 80 to 100 students in 45 shop days. Yes 45 full 6 hour days, we can use a lot of parts! Project need to be design as easy beginner projects and we have order PCB from china at about 50 cents each so total cost should be under 1 dollar each project.
