During the Summer 2019, we ran our program in La Línea de Concepción, Spain, partnering with the US Embassy, La Fundación Secretariado Gitano, and the mayor’s office. We trained 12 teachers for one week and then ran a 6-day STEM-robotics program for 30 girls, many from the Gitano community as well as 6 girls from Ceuta, the Spanish autonomous city on the north coast of Africa. We were fortunate to have been featured on Spain’s 24h TVE news channel as well as RTV Sol.
The Community Bots was featured on another national radio interview in Jamaica which also reaches an international audience. Dr. Vivienne Forester, Head of Upper School Technology at The Chapin School and Community Bots coach, and Jack Cooley, Cofounder of The Community Bots, called in and talked about the amazing program we had just completed at the Mandeville Primary School in Jamaica. They discussed the importance of bringing STEM-robotics to middle school girls and outlined our program in Jamaica.
During our two week in Mandeville, Jamaica we had the opportunity to be interviewed by the NCU FM station. Dr. Vivienne Forrester, Head of Upper School Technology at The Chapin School and Community Bots coach, and Jack Cooley, Cofounder of The Community Bots, shared the mission for The Community Bots and our project at the Mandeville Primary School.
