Model Scout Robotics put in a full day volunteering at the Perot Museum on February 9. For the Discovery Day on Innovation and Engineering event, the team members gave demos of our FIRST LEGO League 2012 Robot Game solution. We also brought several of our other LEGO Mindstorms robots and had a station set up so visitors could drive our robots on the floor using our tablet, Android phone or LEGO Mindstorms controller. One of the robots was a variation of our MoonBots robot so the kid driver could drive watching the robot’s camera output on our laptop.
One of our parents kept a tally on visitors to our station. We demoed to a total of 320 people at the Perot Museum. We got as many kids as we could to run our remote control enabled LEGO Mindstorms robots and gave the kids the opportunity to setup and run our robot missions under our guidance to give them the feel of competing in a FIRST LEGO League robot game. It was a fun day!
