Crisis Housing Shelter offers a robot makerspace!

The Drake House in Atlanta explores the Hummingbird Robotics Kit

The Drake House in Atlanta recently sponsored a series of events introducing robotics to teens who are housed in a short term crisis housing shelter.   

A makerspace studio was set up using BirdBrain Technologies’ Hummingbird Robotics KITs. This was a great opportunity to engineer, craft and program robots for the first time.

The teens were amazing!  In less than two hours they were programming LED’s, servos and sensors using craft and recycled materials. It was truly a rewarding experience to give these courageous youths an opportunity to build confidence and learn new skills.
