This past weekend Hilo Viking Robotics participated in the annual Ellison Onizuka Day fair, which is held in honor of the first and only astronaut born and raised in Hawaii. Various science and technology organizations ran demonstration groups during this event, with HVR proudly among them. Here, a couple members of the club demonstrated the VEX robot and ran a mini-game where anyone interested could try their hand at picking up some sacks and depositing them in the competition trough.
We were happily surprised with the amount of people that showed such a vested interest in what we do, and what robotics is all about – fun, learning and new experiences. Thank you to the event organizers for allowing us to be at the heart of the science and technology community demonstrating what we love.
