Since the beginning of February, the Self eSTEAM Challenge started and with that tinkering and handicrafting in many families and educational institutions. The 600 robot kits sponsored by the Ministère de l’Égalité entre les femmes et les hommes, Spuerkeess and Moes fréres have already been distributed. To our delight, in addition to many motivated boys, many dedicated and enthusiastic girls are also participating in our Challenge. After two months we have already received more than 1400 orders. This means that we cannot take any more booking requests. However, you can still register for the waiting list and preorder for the challenge which is following next year which has already been supported by the Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte.
To make sure that the rest of the dedicated tinkerers get their robot kit, we started the second round of distribution in April. Thanks to the support of 3DPrint.lu, Betzen, Moes Fréres, CNFPC and many helpful students, the next 100 robot kits are ready to be picked up. Last weekend we started the tour with our MakerBuzz, our mobile makerspace, to distribute the robot kits for you!
We have already been to the north at the Lycée Technique in Ettelbruck. The next stop is in the south of Luxembourg. The East and the center are already planned as well. By driving around the country we want to assure that everybody can get access to the robot kits and can participate in our Self eSTEAM Challenge.
