GoGo Board Stanford Fellowship

The goal of the GoGo Board Stanford Fellowship is to fund projects to help the improvement and dissemination of the GoGo platform. This fellowship is funded by a Google Faculty Award. Examples of projects that can be funded by a fellowship are:

New add-on boards/sensor/output devices for the GoGo Board

  • GPS, capacitive sensing, wifi, bluetooth, sensor multiplexing.
  • Low cost chemical sensors.
  • New output devices (easy to use servos, geared motors, etc.)

New software

  • Modules to connect the GoGo Board to other software, new programming environments.


  • Curricula for robotics, science, engineering, or interactive art.
  • After-school programs.


  • School kits ready to be used in classrooms or other learning environments.

Important information

  • Projects take typically three months to completion.
  • The fellowship offers a total of US$ 500.00 per project (not per month).
  • The funds will be sent to the awardees by check or international wire. Stanford will cover the wire fees but not any local fees charged by your banks to withdraw the funds.
  • Groups are welcome to apply.
  • Depending on funding availability and results of the work, the fellowships can be renewed once (for the same person/group).

How to apply

Send the following documentation to gogofellowship@gse.stanford.edu:

  1. A completed application form with your name, address, telephone, email, and website.
  2. Your current CV.
  3. If possible, a portfolio of previous work (or links to websites).
  4. Up to two pages describing the proposed work. 

Past Fellows



Nuttaphon Sonthikhun

Department of Computer Engineering, Chiang Mai University, Thailand

Summer 2010 Project: A new Python-based environment for the GoGo Board. This is the beginning of a new platform that will replace the existing GoGo Monitor software.


Pakawat Sangphetwattanakul

Department of Computer Engineering, Chiang Mai University, Thailand

Summer 2010 Project: Developed a HID USB firmware for the GoGo Board. HID allows the GoGo Board to be truly plug-and-play. No driver is needed and the computer can automatically discover the GoGo Board without requiring a COM port number.
