Springfield Library Family Night

On July 10, the E=mCD’s robot Shark Byte joined robots from team 433, the Firebirds at the Springfield library for “Family Night : Robot Invasion”.  


There was a very large crowd of young children in attendance.  Our goal is to inspire interest is science and technology among kids and this turned out to be a great way to do it.


The children began the evening with the Robot Scavenger hunt.  Each child took a list of robot parts to each one of four robots.  They searched for the parts on each robot and checked them off.  At each robot, a student explained how the robot was build and what the robot was designed to do.



We then gave a demo of the robots.  The kids were very attentive and loved seeing Shark Byte shoot off the basketballs.




After the demo, some of the kids got a change to drive the robots.  



Thanks for your support of the McDevitt’s robots team.  


Next up for the team is a LabView programming class we will be hosting in August.
