Makers Local 256 at SciQuest Robotics Day!

Makers Local was invited to set up a table at the Robotics Day that SciQuest held at their facility last Saturday! At our table, we had a pair of quadcopters, three fighting sumo robots, the legs of a bipedal walking robot, a dinosaur bot, a bluetooth-controlled LEGO robot, a Printrbot Simple Metal printing out robot parts, and a control station for driving a telepresence robot down at Auburn University! Kids and parents both loved seeing all of the different robots, and we definitely enjoyed showing them all off! Special thanks goes out to SciQuest for inviting us, and to Tim, Charlotte, Jesse, Hunter, Brian, Dusty, and Kirstin for coming to help out at the table! Super-special thanks to Dr. Roppel and others down in the Cooperative Robotics Lab at Auburn University for providing access to the telepresence robot and being there all day to talk with people!
