This morning, we launched “X Space” on Kickstarter. Our goal: to bring to life a school library designed and built entirely by our 108 8th grade Studio H students. We hope to raise $75,000 in 30 days (to fund all the construction AND all the books and technology).
Here’s where you come in: the entire library will be made up of hundreds of these X-shaped shelves designed by the students, called STAX (like library stacks). Sidebar: our friend and neighbor Carl Bass, CEO of Autodesk, is lending us his CNC router to produce them. The STAX units are incredibly beautiful and are probably the smartest designed shelf you’ve ever seen (especially by 8th graders!). If 200 STAX are pledged on Kickstarter in 30 days, the entire library will be built. What’s even cooler, is that every time you pledge a STAX for the library, you get a STAX, too.
There are early bird STAX available, and a ton of other options! You can buy them in multiples, or you can even donate a book for the library and have your name permanently marked in it. Either way, you’re physically part of bringing this library to life, and empowering an entire school to build a place where they can learn and explore.
Buy a STAX, buy a book, tell your friends, and keep exploring.
