Bots 4 Tots provides kids with some Robotic Building fun

at 7:08 pm. Filed under DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks, Toy Hacks

 

There are lots of programs for things such as providing sports equipment to kids who would otherwise not be able to afford it. The Chicago area has a great bunch of people who are bringing robot building to young people who would otherwise not be able to afford it. The group is called Bots 4 Tots, if you want to give someone a helping hand into this wonderful industry why not make a donation.

"The goal of Bots 4 Tots is to bring robotics to the lives of curious youngsters who would not have the opportunity to learn about the craft otherwise.

Every penny that is donated to Bots 4 Tots becomes a beginner’s robotics workshop for a Chicago area child. Robot City Workshop sponsors these sessions at its Lakeview store (one block away from Sheffield and Belmont).

For every $25.00 donation, 1 child gets:

  1. A complete build-your-own-robot kit, that he or she will assemble at our workshop and take home that day.
  2. A fun and engaging environment in which to build his or her robot: the classroom located at the Robot City Workshop store.
  3. All the tools the child will need to complete the build-your-own-robot kit, courtesy of the Robot City Workshop.
  4. Helpful guidance for those often-tricky instructions: Bots 4 Tots Founders, Don and Alexis, as well as Robot City Workshop employees will be available to assist the child because we want them to succeed at their first attempt! (They’ll have their fair share of trouble-shooting down the line if they pick up the hobby!)"
