The Detroit Robot Factory is finally open—and there are so many incredibly cool partnerships popping up between 826michigan, artists, writers, schools, and organizations across Detroit for the benefit of our students. This time around, students from Detroit’s Boggs School are the first to experience magical rides throughout the Eastern Market on pangolins, bison, and polar bears.

Read all about the bikes in the article below written by the Detroit Metro Times.
