Today we went to an outreach event at McMaster! We were invited by 1309A to McMaster with 2188A to present our robots! We spent the day promoting VEX and the Starstruck game to kids and parents. There were fields set up for us, so we played matches with 2188A and 1309A, while explaining robotics to parents and kids. We talked to some parents interested in getting their kids into robotics and answered their questions about the competition and what the robotics world is like.
We also let the kids play with and drive the robots! For the parents and more academic people who came, we showed off our autonomous programs and our skills runs. Overall, it was a pretty fun time, and it seemed like quite a few of the kids became more interested in robots!
