Every year, our team attends the State Fair Robotics demonstrations. This event gives FIRST Robotics and its participants a great opportunity to share what Robotics is all about. Demonstrations went on throughout the day along with speaking to visitors not only in the stands but also answering their questions individually.
This year, we ran into trouble with the robot in two areas. Initially, our code was not communicating from the computer to the robot. Once we were able to fix it, the second issue arose after losing a part of our wheel in the parade. Although our robot could not perform in the demonstrations, we were honored to have been given first place in design! We also could not have fixed our code without the help of Talon Robotics, another team attending that same day. We are so grateful for the crowds who came out to support the program and take interest in what we all hold so much passion for.
Make sure to stop by the Education Building next year at the State Fair to see us in action!
