The Community Bots provided their Fun with Robotics program at NicaPhoto in Nicaragua during the summer 2017, introducing young women to STEM-robotics. Click on the image below to see the video about our time there.
During this summer, The Foundation MIR hosted a robotics camp for their students at the MIR school for girls, thanks to the extraordinary support of The Community Bots. The girls had a wonderful experience and loved every minute of it!
The Community Bots was featured on another national radio interview in Jamaica which also reaches an international audience. Dr. Vivienne Forester, Head of Upper School Technology at The Chapin School and Community Bots coach, and Jack Cooley, Cofounder of The Community Bots, called in and talked about the amazing program we had just completed at the Mandeville Primary School in Jamaica. They discussed the importance of bringing STEM-robotics to middle school girls and outlined our program in Jamaica.
During the Summer 2019, we ran our program in La Línea de Concepción, Spain, partnering with the US Embassy, La Fundación Secretariado Gitano, and the mayor’s office. We trained 12 teachers for one week and then ran a 6-day STEM-robotics program for 30 girls, many from the Gitano community as well as 6 girls from Ceuta, the Spanish autonomous city on the north coast of Africa. We were fortunate to have been featured on Spain’s 24h TVE news channel as well as RTV Sol. We would like to thank The Buchan Family and the United States Embassy Madrid for providing us with the Let’s Bot! Robotics Video.
