Day 6 - finale
Today we had no lab, so I was traveling light. I talked about real-world applications of robots, from military and police, to home, medical, and space. I had intended to show some more video (we had some good short videos last week), but Mike Henry came with robots to show, so I passed out the "diplomas" and introduced him to the class. Mike gave a nice presentation of the various school robotics programs in San Antonio, including First Robotics, First Tech, First Lego League, BEST, and GEAR. He had some video to show how lively the competitions get. As a small honorarium, I presented Mike with a Lego Designer Tool Set.
