Two Saturdays ago, we were invited to tour RE^2 (RE Squared - Robot Engineering Excellence) http://www.resquared.com/ and see all the cool things they are doing with Robots. WOW!!!! What an experience!!! They had three or four of their robotics engineers come in on a Saturday and give us quite an eye opening show of many of their project robots. We even got to see this robot in real life!!! http://thearmrobot.com/ We really appreciated them taking the time on a Saturday to share with us!!!
Then we got to show off our robot and even the RE^2 Robotics Engineers thought it was cool! The VP of Operations, Doug Peters, had his team, the Penngineers, come too and we were able to meet them and share about our robot and programming with a future promise of some mentoring for next season.
It was a wonderful day, lots of great inspiration for future robotics engineers! The kids were on Robotics cloud 9 for the rest of the weekend and on into the next week!
