WELCOME
     
I'm Teddy and I enjoy understanding the details of how things work.  I want to share my love of engineering and systems with all of you.  My dream is that our future will be full of fascinating technologies: moon bases, rockets that can traverse the galaxies, medicine that can end disease, a self-driving, traffic-free infrastructure.  However, each of these technologies requires trillions of engineer hours to design and implement!  There are less than 20 million engineers in the world.  Less than 0.27% of the world is working on developing technologies and solutions for the future.  That number is way too low.
WE NEED MORE ENGINEERS
     
My goal is to make videos explaining complex science & engineering systems with the hope of inspiring the pursuit of engineering.  Engineering can be done by anyone!  If someone says you can't understand something, it's not because you're not smart enough, it's because they don't have the proper tools and framework to teach it.  Engineering can be learned and done by anyone.
 
PHOTOREALISTIC ANIMATION:  ACCESSIBLE EDUCATION
     One of the best ways to learn how a technology works is to disassemble it, learn how each piece works, and then put it back together.  This is neither cost effective nor time effective and is not accessible to the general population. My plan is to provide videos that detail the disassembly of the smartphone and its components in order to simulate this process of understanding each component piece by piece.

WHAT WILL WE DO WITH YOUR MONEY?
   
Well for one, it's just me right now.  My wife also helps, especially with making a clear script.  She is a 7th grade math teacher, so she has her own work cut out for her.  So with the money, I'll hire outside support in order to make videos on a faster schedule.  Every dollar you donate will go back into making better videos.  Currently, support is on a per-video basis currently.  It takes me about 4-5 weeks to make a video, so you're not paying if a video happens to take longer than a month to produce.
Tiers
A Leaf on the Tree
$2.50 or more per month
Big goals can only be achieved through small steps.  

You will receive my gratitude.

  • A random set of leaf level supporters will be featured in the credits of each episode as- you guessed it- leaves!
A Branch on the Tree
$5 or more per month
Your encouragement and support of engineering education goes further than you think!  

Your name in the video

  • Every Branch level patron will be added to a branch on the tree.
A Rock in the Forest
$10 or more per month
Believing in accessible engaging engineering education is our foundation.

Your name in the video

  • Every Rock level patron will be added as a rock adjacent to the tree.
Roots of the Tree
$20 or more per month
Nourishment for Branch Education

Your name in the video

  • Every Roots level patron will be added as a set of roots of the tree.
  • Custom wallpapers of the latest episode.
A Cloud in the Sky
$50 or more per month
Branch Education has large aspirations and to do that we need nourishment from the skies above.  

Your name in the video:

  • Your name will be added to a cloud in the sky
  • You will be attributed with supporting a 3D model.
  • This model will be sent to your email.
Goals
$89 of $500 per month
I will be able to start contracting out some animation and work to allow these videos to be made quicker.
