2019 GBG Build and Hackathon - Kansas City

We just hosted our annual GoBabyGo Community Build and Hackathon here in Kansas City! This is the result of a partnership between the VarietyKC Children’s Charity and FIRST Robotics Team 1939 from the Barstow School.

We built 22 cars including 6 specialized cars, one of which was (as far as we know) the first time a hoverboard has been converted to a GoBabyGo car. We built for 3 kids that were over the age of 10 at this build and provides some interesting challenges. Also, received some great news coverage. Check out the links below.

Glad to hear your team is continuing to help kids with Go Baby Go. I remember when your team was with us (CCSU) at the ITEEA conference in KC

Here’s a great student made video that goes more in-depth. Thanks to Angela Deng for making the video!
