“This Isn’t A Deathmatch, It’s Wrestling!” – Robot Sumo at Forest Glade Libary
July 28, 2014
Last Saturday, July 26th, Hackforge lead over 20 kids age 10-18 in building, programming, and competing in robot sumo. According to mentor Paul, the participants took to coding like ‘ducks to water.’ With a little guidance, they were able to run wild with the Lego Mindstorm kits.
Thanks to all the Hackforge mentors Aaron, Paul, and Kevin. We also thank Forest Glade Library and the Windsor Public Library for hosting our event during their summer Eureka program.
The next Robot Sumo event is Saturday, August 9th at Bridgeview Library (1295 Campbell Avenue). The event starts once again at 1PM and goes until 4PM. We welcome kids age 10-18 to participate. This is a free event but registration is required. Register now by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
