Think Etsy for STEAM powered youth. We help young inventors get product to market. The energy scooter generates electricity when it’s ridden to charge electronic handheld devices. The 13 and 14 year old girls who engineered the patent pending portable charging device are featured on Autodesk’s education home page. They entered their first prototype in New York’s Next Top Makers competition and presented at the New York’s Next Top Makers’ booth at Maker Faire. Some visitors had a chance to ride the scooter and charge their iphones and were surprised at how well the scooter worked. Now, that’s what we call girl power! A new prototype was developed with assistance from Autodesk and BlackBox Manufacturing in Brooklyn. The scooter deck, handles and housing for the electronic components were made of carbon fiber. The young makers worked on a third prototype with Autodesk, engineering students from the Olin College of Engineering and at the offices of Pensa design in Brooklyn to reduce the size of the energy generating mechanism. Makeosity’s young engineers are working with Human Condition Labs to complete a limited edition scooter for market by the end of 2016.
