Making robotics accessible to kids is undeniably one of the most important duties of any adult interested in the craft. We have to pass on the understanding and excitement, now more than ever. Bots 4 Tots does just that by offering free robotics workshops to kids!
Bots 4 Tots is a charity started this year to bring free robot building workshops to kids in the Chicago area, ages 10-15. Every penny of our donations goes toward holding robotics workshops for no more than 5 children at a time, and our goal is to inspire some of these kids to pursue robotics beyond the workshops. Being that this is our first year, we're really looking to spread the word about our program, beyond Chicago and beyond the United States, to help bring this (our first) year's Summer and Winter workshops success so that we can continue year after year!
