Roanoke Robotics has an exhibit with VA TECH STEM council on Friday 9-2.
The meetup is for exhibiting robots - not to be confused for scheduling a school group to attend the preview.
I hope you can join me to inspire students technogically. ( is that a real word?)

What a blast. Students had their socks knocked off. Mark's Dalek is always a huge attraction. Mark also made a 8' X 8' elevated arena to run the RC robots, and that worked out very well, beyond wildest hopes. Virginia international Racing was handing out plastic drink glasses, which we discovered were great amplifiers for the robot voice modulator, turning it into another favorite attraction for the students. Funny how some of these little impromptu things can make a huge impact. Everyone at the Science Festival is so nice and makes for such a pleasant experience.

sorry for the lack of photos, we stayed pretty busy.
Turns out we are going to be canning applesauce! Time is of the essence as the apples sit, so we can't just put it off!

NOTE: Roanoke Robotics will be in the Market Building. The Dalek being a multidimensional entity, may also be in the SMWV lobby as well as in the Market Building. Who knows ????? (pun intended)

How does one pronounce the "technogically" word? Maybe "tek - no - geek - a - lee" would be appropriate.
