I work with FRC Team 6413 from Chandler AZ, supported by the Si Se Puede Foundation. Recently we were contacted via social media by MakersPlace: a group in Ghana that aims to increase access to competitive robotics competitions in their country. After meeting with them via Zoom, we learned that both our organizations share similar missions in trying to provide high-quality STEM opportunities in our communities. Their organization has most of the resources that they need to support an FLL program (physical space, mentors, students, computers, etc.). Their biggest need right now is the EV3 kits themselves. We’re looking for other teams who might be interested in helping us gather FLL kits and/or remotely mentor these teams to help support MakersPlace.
For those interested in helping donate and/or remotely mentor these teams. They are looking for 15-20 EV3 kits, used or unused, to support all of the students that they work with by the start of the new season in August. We really appreciate any donations or help. If your team is willing to donate any EV3 kits or is interested in helping mentor those teams remotely, please fill out this short interest form. Based on the feedback, we will contact you with more details. We appreciate your support!
Based off our research, it looks like @kenwah99 and team 5857 have experience in supporting FLL teams in Ghana. It would be great to connect to see if we can work together to help support the FLL program in Ghana. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in this thread or send me a direct message. Thank you!
