Visit the Parallax Universe (3rd trip)

Do you know where robots come from? Do you know what makes robots think, move and do all sorts of things? Well, join me and let's go visit the wonderful world of Parallax Inc., a local robotics company here in Rocklin California. We will see how the brains of robots are made and we may even talk to people that build them.
Make sure to be there a little bit early so that we can start the visit on time.

This is the 3rd trip to accommodate everyone. Please choose to attend one of the trips only. Thank you!

    Wonderful visit to a cool company. Kids enjoyed the visit & gained insight into what is necessary to create parts for robot kits. Who doesn't want to build a 'copter after this visit?!
    Thanks to Parallax and Stephane for a great visit.

    Unfortunately my two year old has a fever and I have no one to watch him, so we will be unable to come now. My other two sons were really looking forward to coming so hopefully the next one will be possible.

    Hi! Too much last week of school stuff happening for us, so we're sadly going to give up our spot today to someone on the list... We'd love to do this if it happens again, so keep us on the list, please!

    If I cannot make it, can my wife bring the kids instead?

    We're coming from the Bay Area. Does anyone know of a good place to have supper afterwards? ... Before we drive home again.

    After a restless night my son started to vomit about an hour ago. We're not coming anymore. (Sigh)

    I'm sorry, my daughter's clown class has their show at the same time and we won't be able to make it. Hopefully this will open up a space for someone else who really wants to go!

    We are on the waitlist for 6/14 visit. Want to bring our 2 young teens, plus myself and husband. Please let us know if we advance from waitlist to the group that is really able to go.

    We couldn't attend the may date, but hope to go in June.

    Maybe I did my notification wrong. Is my son and myself part of the 32 people? If not we will wait for the next time you go in late June.

    It turns out we can't make this due to Tanner's baseball game at the same time . . . if a 4th trip gets scheduled, we'll do our best to be there.

    Crossing fingers that we can get in off the wait list. Contact us last minute if need be!

    No, I haven't perfected time travel yet, but I'll work on the project with my kid in the soldering class. ;)
