GoBabyGo, with its mission to help toddlers with mobility issues by modifying battery-operated ride-on toy vehicles, has become part of Smyrna Middle School’s STEM curriculum.

An article titled “Compassion on the Move” in the June issue of the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce’s Delaware Business magazine, highlights the program, which has customized four cars so far. (Click here to download a PDF of the article.)
