Check out this all-girls Robotics team of straight-up GENIUSES that just invented a ventilator for around $700!! Normally those things cost about $20K to make, but with a little research and hard work, they have no come up with a much cheaper way to help thousands of COVID-19 patients where they live. Their design was partially based on an MIT blueprint, and they received support and guidance from robotics experts at Harvard.
“We are delighted that we were able to take our first step in the field of medicine and to be able to serve the people in this area as well,” Somaya Faruqi, an 18-year old member of the robotics team, told Reuters. “All members of our team feel happy because after months of hard work, we were able to achieve this result.”
As the mom of a kid who LOVES STEM and competes each year in Mobile's own BEST Robotics competition, I feel like a proud mama!
Kids can change the world if given the tools and support!
WAY TO GO GIRLS!
