My name is Emma and together with my team members, Andra, Sander, Justas and Amir we study Industrial Design Engineering at The Hague University of Applied Sciences.
Our aim is to help a NGO called Robótica Educativa in accomplishing their goals.
Hold on! A NGO… What is that?
Honestly I wasn´t so sure at first but let me explain you!
A NGO, a non-governmental organization, is a non-profit, citizen group that functions independently of the government.
Like I said before, we will be working with the NGO Robótica Educativa for the next eight weeks. Robótica Educativa is a Mexican organization targeting the education of Mexican children. The education is mainly aimed at schooling children using simple robotics intended to stimulate their interests towards science.
Our aim is to help them through suggesting new and innovative ideas and help them with any struggles they encounter on the way.
I hope you are as excited as we are!
