Update on Cool & Connected/Honorable Society:
In the next few hours*, the website of https://honorablesociety.group will be up and the survey will be on there! Please note that this is not a .com, but a .group.
Over time, the vision is that there's a bunch of other websites that all point back to https://honorablesociety.group. Here's a sampling:
Please note: It's important that we do not call this a "Makerspace" since there's no physical space at this time. One day there may be, and even when there is, this is not about tools or a place to go to use these tools. It's about an Honorable Society where classes will be all over the county. This is about community and sharing knowledge & techniques and providing mentorship for children and citizens that want to get out of their spare bedrooms and start a side business. Or, it's just for having fun and exploring and discovering something new each week.
*Website is up now.
