Ask jenfoxbot

Ask all your pressing questions and learn more about science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and making!

I. General Question

Ask jenfoxbot a general question about making, science, technology, engineering or mathematics!

A general question would be something like “How do I use a transistor?” or “How do I bring tech into the classroom with like, $5?” These questions are intended to satiate some of your curiosity about the world around us and solve smallish, specific problems.

  • Personal response will be via e-mail or Facebook Messenger
  • Full refunds for unanswered questions within timely manner (within 30 days)
  • Only one (1) question permitted per entry.
  • Multi-part questions must be submitted as separate units.
  • Lewd or rude comments will be charged and will not receive a response.
  • Not satisfied? Ask one (1) additional question for no charge. Valid for 6 months.

II. I want to learn …

A customized plan of action and links to free resources, tutorials, and videos (as available) to get started learning a subject of your choosing at your own pace. Our expertise is in making, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, but we welcome requests outside of these subjects and will provide a full refund if we are unable to help.

This request is more specific and complex than a general question, and might be something like “I want to learn how to control a motor with the micro:bit” or “I want to learn integral calculus.” This is a great option if you want to try something new and aren’t quite sure about it, if you want to learn a specific concept or if you need help with a specific part of your project.

Please note that we provide a starting point for you to begin learning on your own but it is not necessarily a comprehensive or exhaustive guide to becoming an expert (that takes practice!).

Please be as specific as possible in your request. For example, instead of “mathematics”, say “fractions” or “integrals”.

Cost per request: $48.00
