We had a lot of fun over the last 3 days at the Wisconsin Science Festival talking with kids from across the state (and from adjacent states!) about science and technology through a variety of projects that our members have worked on. Big thanks to Bob, Eric, Jesse, Mike and Shira for volunteering a significant portion of their days to help out, either running the booth or keeping the giant bicycle rolling and thanks to the festival sponsors for creating the opportunity.
We brought over the InMoov robot that was created on our 3D printers:
that garnered a lot of attention from the kids:
We also had Bob, Shira, and Eric hosting a table in the robotics zoo behind Union South:
Eric brought along his thermin-based-keyboard that’s always a hit with the kids:
And Shira shared a lot of information about 3D printing, programming, and building robots for 2 days straight:
We 3D printed a cool skull and tried to get a refill on brains but they only had half a brain on sale:
Thanks to our members for adding tremendous value to our community and inspiring a new generation of youth to pursue a technical field of their interest
