As I have posted in your parallel thread... Your school district does not seem vastly interested in projects that will bust a HS students budget... See page 5.

Better yet, let HER join in on the conversation. All of my nieces are pretty internet conversant and can quite easily express their needs.

Again, what happens to all the donations after the Senior Project?
I will tell her to create an account and join the conversation. As for the donations, i know the donations for the project i helped with last year on maple sugaring are still in use. They still make about 20gals of syrup a year.

As for her stuff, if she does not continue to use it, it will sit in my basement. I may find some spare time and use it. But I doubt it.

Yes I read the paper, she could have chosen to do something else. I agree with u on that. But is seems every young adult there seems to go all out. Maple sugaring cost alot but seemed to get them the equipment needed. The hot tub the young man did was insane but all donations. Her friend is building a computer for his senior project, he has 6k in parts in the thing already. So i guess it could be cheap to do a project but it can get expensive as well. Depending on the project.

Fair enough.

It also may be a good teaching moment for her... Why accumulate $2,000.00 + for a Senior High School Project (Very admirable!) and let the equipment, donated from others (and purchased from you/wife), be used for 4 weeks and left to "rust"... Alas, nice equipment should not be allowed to ...rust...


SHE could donate the equipment after she graduates HS to the IAP BASH!!!

Maybe the Slimline Contest.....

She is trying to get me into this turning thing as well. I told her I dont have the time with two jobs and a 2 year old. But I can tell you the more I watch her and help her, the more fun and relaxing it looks. So one never knows it may or may not rust.
Give me more info on the two things above, maybe we will see what happens.

My son also built a high-end gaming computer... Cost about $850.00 with parts from Micro-Center. He did trade in for a model from Alien Ware. That one cost a whopping $2,500. I thought that was insane. 6K??? Is he doing battle with Russia. (My Bad...).

LOL, i about fell over when she told me what he spent. I guess that is everything total. Three monitors, four graphics cards, list goes on and on. She told me he was building it for "folding @ home" to help find a cure for cancer. I would say most of his stuff was donated for that, but i honestly dont know.

Or you could donate the equipment to the Industrial Arts Department at the school. I'm sure the teacher would love the equipment as elective courses across our country have taken a hit due to budget cuts. It would be a tax deduction as well. Here is the teacher's contact information: Mr. Gosselin's email: jgosselin@sunapeeschools.org
