Challenge

Robotics challenges develop logical thinking and grit. Under COVID-19 lockdown 9 Punto Crea youth prepare for Balam 2020 learning about electricity, electronics and programming. But they need the robot kit and funds to attend the contest later this year. =/= La robotica desarrolla el pensamiento logico y la persistencia. En cuarentena, 9 jovenes de Punto Crea se preparan para Balam 2020 aprendiendo electricidad, electronica y programacion. Pero necesitan kits de robotica y viaticos para asistir.

Solution

Punto Crea will provide safe transport (a minibus), room and board for 7 youth participants and 2 tutors to attend Balam 2020 in Guatemala City (3 days + 2 nights), as well as 4 reusable robot kits (2 per team) =/= Punto Crea proporcionara transporte seguro (microbus), hospedaje y alimentacion para 7 participantes y 2 tutores en Balam 2020 en Ciudad de Guatemala (3 dias + 2 noches), y 4 kits de robotica reutilizables (2 x equipo).
