Several members of the Richard Montgomery High School Robotics Club will be joining us to teach everyone about robotics and give a tutorial using Lego NXTs. The team recently competed at the FIRST Robotics world championship event and were awarded a 2nd place overall ranking. About 2800 teams from around the world compete in their division, so this is no small accomplishment. They're also bringing SheRMan, their FIRST Robotics robot, and will let the kids drive it around as time permits. SheRMan is a pretty cool robot, so adults in the group may also be interested in some of the finer points of its design.
Last year we had a great time when the robotics club visited, but the room did fill up. Please RSVP if you can make it so that we plan accordingly.
As before, we'll be at the Silver Spring Civic Building which is located near the intersection of Fenton Street and Ellsworth Drive in downtown Silver Spring. Nearby parking garages provide plenty of free parking. If you do not see us, someone is usually at the front desk who can help.
