Enabled development is planning on running Summer School Workshops (Australian summer is January, 2016) to keep high school students busy during there breaks, they want Nuvotion to run a one day workshop centered on applied programming of the Tea Dunker STEM. This raised many question that the team had to answer regarding deploying the product in particular hardware and software licenses.

A lot of discussion was had between team members of legal ownership and contribution to the project. We came to the conclusion that the Tea Dunker product is not really the value proposition more a method of education.

The real value comes from how the education component (STEM Tea Dunker Workshop) is to be delivered as this relies heavily on Nuvotions intellectual property.

The design team in consultation with partners has decided to release the software/firmware code under GPL/V3 license and hardware files under Open Source Hardware (OSHW) Definition 1.0 .
