A New Partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters

Last week I went down to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pittsburgh. I talked with their special services coordinator Cheryl about our 100 Robots project. Cheryl and the other members of BBBS seemed very excited about the project and we agreed to be partners. BBBS is a great organization. They already have a network of at-risk children and mentors in place and are always looking for creative activities for their Bigs and Littles to do together. It seemed like a natural fit.

Anyway, I'm happy to say we made our first robot drop. We dropped off 8 NXT robots at BBBS and they are already preparing a list of children that would be appropriate for the project. More coming soon..
