Robotics / Engineering – Much to my surprise, we’ve had problems consistently getting kids to come out to the robotics club. We have 3 full sets of Vex IQ robots, along with 10 sets of 2wd chassis robots with Arduinos. However, today there was a good turnout which was nice to see.
It was also great to see the kids destroy an LED! I’m not sure if they had it wired with the wrong polarity, or if they just didn’t have a large enough resistor on their circuit. Regardless, it’s a great way for kids to learn something about circuits. They all laughed pretty hard, so it will be memorable.
