Today concluded our two day demo at the Ann’s Place Festival of Trees. We had a great day, and we were named an Honorable Mention in the robotics competition, with a total of 192 votes.
We were better prepared for the knock down the kickstand challenge, with plastic tubs to sit under the center goal. Therefore, we could have a lot more kids (and adults, too!) come and try the activity. It worked well–something to definitely save for later Cascade Effect! demos. Besides the challenge, we were also able to explain to more interested people how our robot works and the real-world purpose of mecanum wheels. During the day, we even met Kennedy Catholic alumni, what a small world.
All in all, this was a wonderful outreach event for a wonderful organization. We are so lucky to have been contacted to do this, hopefully we can come back for more!
