The 5 Minute Robot

Let me first start by acknowledging Ken Rothwell and Scott Wheeler.  They have graciously volunteered to help out with the Robotics Club for this school year.  I was not able to be there for the meeting today, so Ken and Scott stepped up to the plate and led the club.  Today, the kids built the base robot.  Everyone was able to finish building their robot, and some were even able to put in practice what they learned last week and programmed their robots to go places.   I think that the following quote from Ken pretty much summarizes how the meeting went today:

                “It was hard to get the kids to stop and go to class. The bell rang but everyone stayed until 9. The tracked out kids wanted to do even more.”

Just in case you are curious, the base robot should look something like this:
