MIT Museum Event #2

At the beginning of June of 2013 — just a day after Discovery Day — we went to the MIT Museum Event in Kendall Square for their annual “Flowers Sprout FIRST” event, named after Professor Woodie Flowers.  Like Discovery Day, we brought our robot, posters showing our work and outreach, multiple slideshows, brochures and pamphlets, and 3D printed models of our CAD (Computer Aided Design) work.  In addition, we brought our engineering notebook, which documented our daily work, events, and thought processes throughout the entire year.  At the center of the event was the FTC field from that season (“Ring it Up”) and an FCS (Field Controlled Systems) set-up.  Several other teams were invited, and they brought along their robots too.  Over the course of the event, we showed off our robots in action and in competition in front of a crowd of museum-goers and people who happened to be passing by.  The event was a great way for us to meet and befriend other FTC teams, to show the people who came the fruits of our labor, and to inspire the children there to get interested in engineering.
