Roaring Riptide Delivers Adapted Toys for the Holidays

December 18, 2018

The P.K. Yonge Roaring Riptide Robotics Team #4118 has been working on more than just preparation for competitions!

Roaring Riptide was the first ever high school robotics team to work with ATMakers, before they even became AT Makers! Last year, students from Roaring Riptide traveled to Orlando with a few other organizations to adapt around 100 toys for children with limited motor control.

This year, over 100 students from high school robotics teams, all new to the AT Maker Movement, came together in Orlando to adapt over 130 toys and 3-D print over 90 switches at the Christmas Adapt-A-Thon.

The Roaring Riptide delivered toys to the Sidney Lanier Center on December 17th and hopes to partner with the Center in the future in an effort to design better toys for children with limited motor control.
