10 AM, Meet & Greet, bring your Halloween/cosplay projects for show & tell, Q&A, project ideas. 11AM - Basic Robot Mechanics. This is for all age groups. We will start off explaining concepts on force, speed, torque, leverage, friction, thrust, and mechanical power. Next is some exercises and demos about levers, pulleys, brakes, and gears. Finally how all these properties relate to making real machines, and leading to some understanding of spec sheets for servos, motors, and gearboxes.
