On the next Startup Radio, we talk with Danny Eizicovits, Ph.D., who is a Co-founder and the CEO of Algobrix. The company teaches kids the basic of coding and robotics using LEGO compatible coding blocks.
Danny says Algobrix is a real game changer as it creates a positive association to coding. Kids build a robot from building blocks and then build code using physical LEGO compatible coding blocks. Each block represents a logical command that allows the robot to move around, make sounds, and light up.
Algobrix recently did a Kickstarter a sucessful campaign over the summer becoming fully funded in 24 hours and raising over $1 Million during the two month time frame. Danny says crowdfunding allowed them to have the world judge their project.
Before joining Algobrix, Danny was teaching at Ben Gurion University and researched a variety of subjects in the field of robotics. Among his projects, he developed an innovative concept for robotic grasping and a 3D robotic game for upper limb rehabilitation.
Algobrix Indiegogo is available here and you can view the Kickstarter Page here.

This is a re-broadcast of STEM Voices that aired on April 26, 2017. We talk with Wendy Erikson, a contributor to Women and Drones. Wendy spent 25 years as a TV journalist before getting interested in drones. She began researching UAV technology, attended a couple conferences, bought a drone, and became an FAA Certified Remote Pilot.
Women and Drones is the premiere global platform for women in the UAS industry. Women and Drones was started by Sharon Rossmark and covers stories about women from around the world who are doing exciting things with drones. The global platform also provides a place for women to connect, share ideas as well as preferences for products and services. Women and Drones also supports efforts to inspire more girls in science, technology, engineering, arts and math, otherwise known STEM/STEAM.
