After a long night with Relay For Life, a few of us brought our robot and gear to Queen’s University for the Science Rendezvous.Robot transportation is sometimes difficult, but today it was pretty simple. We are very glad that Queen’s is close by, and that the sun was shining! We were excited to be a part of the Science Rendezvous, an event that brings together many different community groups to show demonstrations of different kinds of science.We got our display set up…ready for the event to begin at 10AM.At the event, there were many different booths to explore. We had fun learning about different aspects of science…There were many different people presenting their work. There were professors, and grad students, high school students, and even elementary student science fair winners. These two girls made robots out of toothbrushes!
Here’s the robot in action.
The Human Mobility Research Center showed how computer assisted surgery works…programming and cameras seem to be everywhere!Our display was a big hit with all ages. From young drivers….…to parents, everyone was interested in our program and how we were able to create this robot in 6 weeks.We are glad of the opportunity to demonstrate our robot at this event. Many thanks to the organizers of the Science Rendezvous. We hope to participate for years to come.
