Every year on April 23rd, we drive a chair bot around school for outreach and team recruitment. But this year, 423 day is on a Saturday. So we thought: "Why don't we just do two days of outreach!?!? One today at Philadelphia Science Festival at John Story Jenks School, and one in school on Monday?".
At the Festival today, we had a great time: our safety officer gave demonstrations on proper tool usage, kids rode the chair bot, the Simple Machines talked robot.
