“We are very excited to receive the Women and Drones’ 2020 Global Ambassador Award. All of us at WeRobotics and the Flying Labs network love to share our passion and expertise for robotics and their local use for social good. Inspiring and motivating girls to engage in robotics and STEM is part of our daily activities. And empowering and supporting women to continue being the strong leaders and changemakers they already are is part of our organizational DNA. Doing so, within our non-profit and the Flying Labs network at large, is deeply rewarding for all of us. Being honored by Women and Drones for sharing this passion makes our hearts smile even brighter and we are very grateful for this recognition.”
