The Atalaya Sur - Proyecto Comunidad Group was born from the concept of digital inclusion and aims for people of all backgrounds to achieve a real appropriation of technology. Our guiding principles are: - to enhance connectivity through the development of a community wi-fi network; - to develop a digital platform that allows users to produce content, creating a virtual space where the voice of the least privileged is heard; - to create an educational space which fosters the ability to pursue high tech careers and contributes to changing education paradigms. A few months ago, we launched the "Robots For Inclusion” campaign to raise the funds to purchase robotics kits for two community centers. Today, Atalaya Sur runs Robotics workshops for young people over the age of 15. The idea of building a 3D printer emerged from the wish to further enhance kids' understanding of technology. The project would allow youth to create prototypes offering technological solutions to problems in the slums. Furthermore, establishing a workshop would provide a space to start new projects. Technological change always comes from individuals and we believe it is vitally important that youth from the Villa 20 slum take an active part in innovations that can change the way we work and produce objects. We need to raise 17,000 Argentine pesos (about US$ 1,900) to purchase electronic and mechanical tools and supplies and an extruder.
If we don't reach the 100% of the funding goal, we will use it to do the following:
With the 10%
Elementos de Electrónica mecánica: placas arduino y ramps, fuente de alimentación, Smart LCD (controlador de impresora).
With the 25%
Elementos de Electrónica mecánica, Motores paso a paso y drivers para motores.
With the 50%
Elementos de Electrónica mecánica, motores paso a paso, drivers, más Elementos de Mecánica- poleas, correas, acopladores, Herramental (tester, soldadores)
With the 75%
Elementos de Electrónica mecánica, Elementos de Mecánica, Kit Raspberry, Tornillería, Varillas y material Herramental (soldador, tester, llaves, entre otras)
