Nepal Robotics/Bullis-Kanjirowa STEM Update 20 March 2016, NepalRobotics
Keith's note: Mike Kronmiller and his father Ted are in Nepal with for their latest adventure: "Day two was much busier than day one. In the morning I had a meeting with the wildlife warden for the park at Kala Pathar (where I will be testing my drone) This meeting was critical for gaining approval to fly at Everest Base Camp. Luckily the warden was supportive of the project and stated he looked forward to a long term relationship with his park and the drone project. After that I went to Kanjirowa (our partner school) to pick up batteries for my drone. I had to have them made in Nepal because I am not allowed to ship the LiPo batteries from the US."
"In the evening I had dinner with american diplomats to talk about the future of STEM in Nepal. They talked about Nepal's first ever Maker Faire that they are supporting in September."
