Team Model Scouts took a road trip to Sasche, TX to meet Pack 1492 on May 17th, 2012. Naturally, we brought our robots. We setup and ran three stations at the pack meeting: 1. First Lego League Robot Game, 2. robotic gadgets, and 3. robot navigation — a. line following using a color sensor, b. navigating to a beacon with compass and IR sensors sensors.
35 scouts from Pack 1492 attended the event.
Model Scout Anthony Mellone gave a presentation to Pack 254 on April 27th about his adventures on the Model Scout robotic team. At his Webelos den meeting on April 28th, his den went to a Sumobot workshop at Arts and Technology Institute in Frisco to build NXT Mindstorm “sumo” bots that then competed to push each other out of the ring.
Model Scout Robotics entertained the guests at the Circle 10 Annual Friends of Scouting dinner on March 6th 2012 at the Dallas Hyatt Regency Hotel. We showed our autonomous robot, Scoutbot, running the Food Factor Challenge Robot Game course. We educated scouts, Scouters, and scout supporters on First Lego League, the new Boy Scout Robotics merit badge and getting started youth robotics. At the dinner, we heard an amazing female Venturer scout sing the National Anthem and we heard Condalezza Rice speak. Former First Lady Laura Bush attended the dinner but we were fairly far away to see her.
