The robots are coming! IEEE Foundation grant awarded to build friends for KEN, promote STEM Outreach
Thanks to a grant from the IEEE Foundation, the Eastern North Carolina Section and The Forge Initiative are partnering to teach students how to assemble and customize four new versions of Ken. The new Kens will then be shared around North Carolina at STEM Outreach events. You can read about the project here: http://bit.ly/1RaLzpf
A kickoff meeting will take place at the Forge Initiative's Hopewell site on January 13, 2016 from 7:30-9:00 pm. Daniel McDonald and Grayson will be attending to share Ken and answer questions about the project.
