OWI Inc. Partners with xUmp.com to Create a Successful Hands-On Science Event for Children
OWI Inc., a leading supplier of educational robot construction kits, has partnered with xUmp.com's efforts to reach out into their local community by donating robot kits for its monthly MeetUp science activity.
“These easy-to-build kits will entice science enthusiasts as well as those who are not so keen on science off the couch and on to the accomplishment of building something educational and fun,” stated Craig Morioka, sales manager at OWI Inc. It’s exciting to watch solar energy come to life, and this hands-on approach to science and building creates a tangible lesson in solar energy.” OWI Inc. donated 12 attacking inchworm robot kits for children to build and take home with them for xUmp.com’s July science event, which took place on July 17th at xUmp’s warehouse location in Signal Hill, CA. XUmp.com is one of the largest online retailers specializing in science supplies and toys, shipping to over 200,000 customers in 105 countries worldwide.
OWI Inc.’s donation to our program went a long way towards helping us in our goal to make our monthly science events impactful for children,” commented Ana Sanchez, Operations Manager of xUmp.com. “We wanted to make this program be a hands-on way for kids to learn about science, and these solar robot kits are an excellent way of doing that. We were happy to offer them to our participants!”
