The Gift of Education - A Noble Prize Winner...


"I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way," are the words from a song recorded by Whitney Houston. These words ring true...

Two years ago I posted an article about a remarkable 15 year old girl, Malala Yousafzai, form Pakistan,

who was outspoken activist for girls' right to education. After surviving a near fatal terrorist attempt on her life, she bravely continued her fight for girls' rights and most recently went to Nigeria to campaign for the release of girls kidnapped by the extremist Islamist group Boko Haram.
Now 17 years old, she has become the youngest Noble Peace Prize winner for her courageous work. Read about her in the  New York Times article dated Oct. 10, 2014.


P.S. What does this have to do with LEGO robotics?  Give a girl a LEGO Mindstorms Robotic kit and maybe one day she will win the Noble Prize in Physics for robotic engineering.
