In the Maker Shed: DayCounter Kit

Are you counting down the days until school lets out? Why? Let the DayCounter kit do it for you! This kit from the Maker Shed comes pre-programmed with software that allows it to count up one day at a time, or have it count down one day at a time from a set number. The kit easily mounts in a frame, or poster-board (not included), so you can customize the surrounding text to suit your particular needs. A single DayCounter kit is good for up to 99 days, and they can be “chained together” serially to give you more digits. Hint – Today might be a good day to start following the Maker Shed on Twitter or subscribe to our Deal of the Day RSS feed.
