Our build space visit
We had several visitors to our build space as we were in our final days of this year’s build. Dreadbots Christian and Isaac, along with mentor Mr. Lindskov were able to give a group of children a lesson in robot safety, mechanics and driving. This robot is our programming robot used by our programming and vision sub-teams to prepare for season. We hope to use this robot this summer to teach a programming class in our community.
