Thanks www.robotsquare.com for send this through to me. As part of a RISE project (Robotics Inspired Science Education), close to 400 students from 10 regions of Ghana were able to take part in a robotics workshop. The amazing thing (and humbling for me) is that they used my robot design for part of the workshops.
They're also using the RoboCupJunior Australia Rescue mat (which I also had a big part in creating) as part of their project challenge.
I've emailed the Ghana Robotics Academy Foundation to see if there is anything else I could do to help :)
The mission of Ghana Robotics Academy Foundation (GRAF) is to design accessible and innovative programs that will excite and motivate young Ghanaians to pursue careers in science, technology and engineering, build self-confidence, knowledge and life skills. RiSE introduces students to the excitement and experience of solving real world problems by applying, science, technology, engineering and math skills, all using LEGO Mindstorms.
The inaugural RiSE 2011 workshops were held at Tamale, Accra and Takoradi, it was a celebration of Science, Technology and Teamwork. RiSE 2011 workshop had close to 400 students from all 10 regions of the country. The diversity of the participants was remarkable and each student brought different experiences, interest, and ambitions. In addition, each student demonstrated talents they didn’t know they had.
