What a great story about how kids can learn the practical uses of technology beyond videogames, and significantly help improve someone's life! Now if more teams of kids focused on tackling the development of tools for use by disabled people rather than use their energy on making battlebots, a lot more people's lives could be positively affected, including the kids, and how much nore valuable the results would be. More power to all those involved, and keep up the good work.
