We are a small nonprofit organization operated by volunteer college students. Despite limited resources, we have punched above our weight, creating a sizable impact in every school we’ve worked with and with every student who gets a chance to learn with robots. Every dollar counts, and every investment in New Orleans youth generates multitudes in returns when they grow up. Help us inspire the future of leaders in STEM hailing from New Orleans.
We collect LEGO Mindstorms robotics kits from across the US. If you have gently used kits or parts from the below kits, from your child’s previous FIRST LEGO League (FLL) participation or other uses, we would love you to package and ship them to our facility in Metairie, Louisiana. We reimburse for shipping!
We sort your donations into standardized kits and use them in our after-school programs.
There is no need to disassemble any kits or extensions. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Since 2021, we have collected roughly $40,000 worth of in-kind donations of robotics equipment from 16 states, ranging from Colorado to Connecticut.
Kits we accept:
LEGO Mindstorms: NXT 1.0 and NXT 2.0
LEGO Technic bricks
EV3 parts: motors, sensors, cables, batteries
LEGO Mindstorms Expansions Sets
