Waukesha County Fair and Robotics 2011

On July 23rd and 24th, 2011, at the Waukesha County Fair, we were given an area to demonstrate in the 4-H building. The people who found us all loved to see the different robots on display. Doing demonstrations like this is always fun because when we can tell the parents about the programs, they seem genuinely interested and it’s fun to tell people about all the things one is passionate about. The little kids loved driving the VEX robots around, and everyone was amazed with the complexity and control offered by our larger FRC robot, Daedalus. All sorts of people go to the fair, so it was a great place to find kids that hadn’t heard about the different robotics programs. Seeing how amazed the kids are when they drive even simple VEX bots was really entertaining to witness. While they’re having fun, one can only hope that it makes enough of an impression and they will want to get involved later.
