Last Friday Oregon State University hosted 100 plus graduating seniors and their final projects. Along with that, FIRST shows off their bots to the local community.
There were 5 FIRST teams with bots. We brought our 2012 bot, as it was something the public could readily drive. The other teams had climbers, which were a bit too sophisticated for folks to quickly learn
Those who most wanted to drive the bot were younger children, and at times we had a bit of a line. Some really enjoyed putting the bot through its paces. Thanks to instruction by our team members, and some watchful eyes, many got a chance to try.
We also helped the other teams with their climbing bots.
Many thanks to Jordan H, Katelyn M, Nathan B, Chris N, Ryan VW, and Steve M for helping with the community outreach. It was also a great opportunity for us to see what is going at OSU Engineering.
