In just three weeks, our community has crowdfunded and given 177 million EDU to some of the brightest middle, high school, and college students we could find! EDU has traveled from coast to coast in the US, from New York to Texas to California. This has had two major consequences. Student hackers are trying out new ideas to disrupt education with EDU.
