This event has passed.
The Brooklyn Robot Foundry began with two friends who joined forces to inspire and motivate kids by teaching them the fun of making. With a DIT ("do it together") mentality and an emphasis on education and community engagement, The BRF has established an organization dedicated to teaching others about the fun of engineering and technology.
Watch the BRF co-founders Jenny Young and David Van Esselstyn give an overview of robot-making and share some lessons learned along the way. Jenny and David have backgrounds in mechanical engineering, software and educational psychology, and have both been working with their hands since they were children.
