Basic Organization & Policies

The main goal of CRC is to provide infrastructure to the STEM (Science - Technology - Engineering - Mathematics) community. We don't take an active role in defining your projects or how you manage them. Our interest is in providing a nice environment, tools, and resources you need to execute your plans. CRC is a Board Only organization so that reliable financial operations and participant efforts are isolated.

Happy 2014! We've got a growing list of activities for this new year so get in touch if you're into doing hands-on STEM, drop us an email or call. On 1-4-13 we asked to update our virtual machine that hosts the CRC webpage and services. We'll be rebuilding from a clean install.

We do have a basic rule that governs all activities:

No police, other LEA, firemen, EMTs, tax men, or other authority figures in a bad mood. If your project requires insurance, licenses, or needs to meet other regulatory requirements it is not CRC's responsibility to provide them.

Confusion Research Center respects the intellectual property of others and makes no claim to activities by participants. We strongly suggest considering public domain or one of the copyleft licenses. Confusion Research Center reserves all intellectual property rights to projects it sponsors or funds pursuant to any contracts or other agreements.
