We had a great turn out at our Annual Community Open House! Our family and friends, along with many special guests, including our principal Mr. Abraham and our superintendent Dr. Little, came out to support us. Our VEX team also made an appearance and demoed their robot. Each sub team had a table set up to tell about what they do on the team. We also demoed our robot, and showed the game animation. We had a great time and appreciate all the love and support from everyone who came!
Six weeks and counting! Build season kicked off this morning with the broadcast and reveal of the 2014 game. This year’s challenge is Aerial Assist. The main goal is to score a large ball into various goals with a focus on team work. We’ve started brainstorming and breaking down the game and we can’t wait to create a new robot!
On Saturday, We hosted a group of Girl Scouts in our lab for an afternoon of robotics and excitement! The girls had a blast working with team members to build a golfing robot using Lego Mindstorms pieces while getting experience in engineering at the same time. After the project the scouts stepped up and learned how to drive Omicron, our 2013 robot.
At the request of LEAD, a program residing at IUPUI, we demonstrated our 2013 robot to the participants for their camp. Ranging from 6th to 9th grade, the campers glowed at the sight of our robot, especially when at the controls. The rest of the camp was engaging, focusing on topics such as space and energy solutions. Overall, it was a great event and many thanks are offered to LEAD for inviting us to participate in the event.
