Hi everyone Here is the information for the VSTE Conference. I will coordinate so if you plan on demonstrating please email me ([masked]) and let me know. Thanks
Space is a challenge at the Hotel Roanoke. We can provide one or two draped tables and an area where you can demo robots. Sunday afternoon would be perfect, say from 1 to 3 PM but if you get set up earlier that would be fine. They should just plan on doing ongoing demos. And the adults are also welcome to bring whatever projects they might want to. I will need names of both adults and kids along with email addresses for the adults. We can accommodate up to about 10 people total.

It was wonderful to meet everyone. I will be posting more about the VSTE December 8 Conference day as soon as I know more about the details. In the meantime here is what VSTE is about.
Remember you will have a receptive audience of educators wanting to learn more about robotics and mostly what your projects are and why you like robotics etc. It will be a time to teach the teachers ;-)

Thank you Christine, a great opportunity for networking and sharing ideas. Being teachers, are we required to program with Apple products......? [ get it, bring the teacher an apple ? jajajajajaja ]

I just uploaded two files. One is a list of upcoming robotics events and the other provides instructions on how to find VEX and FIRST events on the web.
If you'd like to visit our website, it is Robodesigners.com. From time to time we update it with info about what we are doing, but also include some helpful resources.
We enjoyed meeting everyone at the meeting today. Hope to be able to attend again soon.
Thank you for coming today, it was a pleasure to meet your robotics team and family. The website is awesome. The club would enjoy a short program at some future meeting about robot building with Propeller and also a VEX, from member(s) of the RoboDesigner team. Hope to see everyone real soon.
most excellent meeting, welcome to new members and thank you coming and sharing your projects. Great demo on sphero, VEX competition bot, and an work in process entry for December's robot competition. Alot of new opportunities to be posted for robotics experiences and networking. http://www.gosphero.com/
interesting article ( I'm still digesting all the acronyms ) for projects of all imaginations http://makezine.com/magazine/ma...

Just joined. Would love to meet you on Nov 2, but I have a previous commitment (I'm testing for Black Belt!). (Gary Yohe -- coincidentally, I just heard about your bot from a mutual friend).

.....so you talked to John K. :-) Good luck with the black belt (altho you dont need it for the club). We are protected by a fleet of ninja sumo bots and UAVs. Feel free to invite friends & family.
Will show the bot made specifically ( at the last minute) for the science museum haunted lab. The interesting thing is the voice modulator IC HT8950A, it is very easy to use to make a robot voice. Will bring spec sheets.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
