Bitcoin Alternative, - Rimbit the Next Generation Digital Currency
One of the many goals that Rimbit has is the distribution of Rimbit to community projects.
One of the many reasons Rimbit can be used over other Crypto Currency is that Rimbit is not mined. That means students, teachers and schools do not need to spend $1000's of dollars each time difficulty levels render hardware obsolete. Students can learn the inner workings of Rimbit and also how it offers Interest instead of the old fashion way that is mining!
Shattuck-St. Mary's is a private boarding school in Faribault, Minnesota, USA. Shattuck provides a college preparatory education for students in grades 6 - 12, many of whom specialize in one of a number of focused, specialized, activities including Hockey, Soccer, Figure Skating, Golf, Music Performance, Biomedical, and... Engineering! One of the engineering classes offered at Shattuck is a Robotics/Electronics class, as described below.
The Robotics Class will teach robotics to students by having students build their own robot, powered by the Raspberry Pi B+, and accomplish a list of tasks. Each task will be assigned a value in Rimbit; when a given task is completed, the corresponding amount of rimbit will be sent to that student's wallet. The initial tasks are designed to familiarize students with the Raspberry Pi and its many capabilities in order to remove their fear of the technology and, hopefully, inspire some ideas on what they can do with their robot. Later tasks will provide increasingly difficult robot challenges.
At the end of the course, students are able to purchase (at cost) their robot if they want and students with an A or B grade will be able to keep 10% of their wallet (this may be adjusted later if interest does not keep up with the outflows...).
Grades will be issued each week according to the amount of RBT in each student's wallet. The final grade will also be based on the Student's wallet balance.
