CITRIS Invention Lab is thrilled to host 60 high school students from Lima, Peru for a tour about 3D Printing, Arduino, and Soft Robotics.
The visit is organized by INvent and United Technologies For Kids.
Invent is an organization that teaches technology to economically disadvantaged high schoolers from Peru and Columbia every year and follows up with the students with a conference at UC Berkeley.
United Technologies for Kids (UTK) is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging STEM education in high schools globally. Each June, our team of dedicated UC Berkeley students travels to Perú or Colombia to teach Arduino technology and 3D printing, for a month. The students demonstrate their mastery of these technologies by creating and presenting projects during our annual UTK conference at UC Berkeley in February.
