Day 91 - Future Engineers

Today I accompanied our school's robotics team to the regional competition at the Museum of Civilization. Elementary and high school teams were challenged to complete challenges simulating water clean up. The elementary teams had to avoid the obstacles and then remove the robot crab that was infesting their waters. The high school teams had to clean up the water by removing black and white containers and placing them in the designated areas. It's a great opportunity for students to work together. They learned how robots have changed how we study and clean bodies of water. They were also exposed to the various careers within the area of robotics. From what I saw today, I'd say there were definitely a few future engineers participating in today's event.
