Festival of Trees Day 1

Today we demoed at the Ann’s Place Festival of Trees (Christmas trees, and not deciduous trees, which took me several months to figure out), a wonderful fundraising event for the organization. Ann’s Place offers support to cancer survivors and their families, something we’re very proud to get behind!

For today and tomorrow, we will be showing off our robot, PT-109 and the Cascade Effect! game. We also have Ranger built so that the youngins’ can drive a robot too. Although if you saw our tweets, you’d know the day quickly (and humorously) deteriorated into “Hey kid, try and knock down the kickstand!” as we ran around collecting wiffle balls.

So far we’ve had a lot of fun, taken advantage of the time to program our ‘bot, and met six other local robotics groups. We’re so thankful to be a part of this great event!

Check back tomorrow for photos and videos of the robot row. And if you’re in the area, come on out and see for real! (And perhaps drop your robot voting ticket at our station? *wonk wonk* 😉 )
