And there's been a bunch of "value clusters" over the years (StoneSouperComputer, for instance)..
But that's still $3k.
I could see putting together 8 nodes for a few hundred dollars. Arduino Uno R3 is about $25 each in quantity.
Think in terms of a small class where you want to have, say, 10 mini-clusters, one per student. No sharing, etc.

The LittleFe cluster is designed specifically for teaching and demonstration. Current cost is ~$3k. But it's all standard x86 and runs Linux and even has GPUs.
I saw them build a bunch of them at SC11.
