Cub Scout Demonstration

This Tuesday, Team 4009 had the Cub Scouts visit Denfeld High-school to check our base of operations! After giving a tour of both the FAB LAB and our general work space, the Cub Scouts got to work with volunteering team members to create their own robots (Scribblebots) to color on a large piece of paper. In doing this they earned the “Robotics Adventure Loop”. Thanks for coming, Cub Scouts!

Participants in the Lego Robotics Camp are given tasks to complete at their own pace while learning skills such as how to program a robot, solve problems, etc.
