Geek(s) of the Week: The Flying Monkeys

The Flying Monkeys of Ames, Iowa (found here)
Let's hear it for mad scientist girls!  A Girl Scout sponsored robotics team (made up of sixth and seventh grade girls) in Iowa invented a prosthetic device that allows three year old Danielle to write with her fingerless right hand for the first time!  Their invention, which they call Bob-1, was entered in the FIRST Lego League (FLL) competition and worked so well, they won $20,000 to secure a patent!
