We think this is going to be an amazing experience which will produce some creative and unique ways to gamefy all sorts of stuff. If you think so too here's some ways to take part.
Spread the Word
Print out this announcement and post it around your school, office, neighborhood... wherever you think smart young collaborateurs-to-be might hang out. We'd also be happy to print several and send them to you.
Come play board games (yes, it's that easy) for as little as a half a day. You can also help the groups develop their concepts by aiding them in illustration, fabrication, design, play testing, marketing, or anything else.
We have a special need for a photographer/videographers to help us document this process to help other groups be able to hold their own Collaborateur camps.
Collaborateurs is a pilot program run primarily on energy, goodwill, and a desire to help the next generation have a collaborative, open-source attitude to technology and ideas. Any financial contributions to this effort will help the program by enabling the participants to have access to more materials, funding scholarships for those students with need, and potentially funding travel to events such as the Detroit Maker Faire. We appreciate any donation to this program.
