Earth Computer has a long history of supporting education and the Maker community. As one of the first distributors of TFT LCDs in the world starting in 1994 we’ve donated product to education, supported interns and sponsored the EarthMake Orange County Raspberry Pi Arduino Meetup. Educational discounts and sponsorship are available. In 2012 Randy Schafer EarthLCD CEO and Arduino cofounder Massimo Banzi met at Maker Faire Bay Area. Inspired Randy launched the arLCD project combining the ezLCD with an Arduino a year later and it became one of the first Arduino at Heart products sold by Arduino. Maker products are intended for educational products and are not guaranteed for long term availability unless otherwise noted.
