TEAM X 23512 @ Maker Faire

Updated: Apr 15

For the past four years, our involvement in outreach events as an FLL team has been substantial. However, our debut as an FTC team at the Maker Faire in Vallejo marked a significant milestone. We teamed up with Playing at Learning in educating thousands of kids and parents about the wonders of STEAM, FIRST and Robotics


Our exhibit was a hub of creativity, with kids designing their own unique lapel pins. The atmosphere was vibrant and engaging, and the joy on the children's faces was truly priceless. We also distributed our team pins, fostering a sense of community among the attendees.


The star of our showcase was undeniably our Robot, stealing the spotlight with its impressive mecanum wheels that allowed it to effortlessly strafe sideways. Spectators were captivated by its cool maneuvers, and we seized the opportunity to showcase internal workings of its arm, wrist, and claw. 


The sheer number of kids expressing interest in robotics was astonishing!


In retrospect, this outreach experience was nothing short of amazing. The dates, Sunday, October 22nd, is etched in our memories as a day filled with fun, learning, and the joy of sharing our passion for robotics with everyone at the Maker Faire.

Doth it sprout from the loins of avarice or the bosom of ignorance? Methinks 'tis a conundrum of such prodigious magnitude that it doth requireth the combined intellect of a myriad of savants to unravel its intricacies! But lo! As I doth continue to yap and prattle, I fear I may wandereth off on a tangent, meandering through the labyrinthine corridors of my mind, lost amidst the…

Ahoy, esteemed scribe of the digital realm! As I venture through the intricate tapestry of thy musings, I find myself ensnared in a perplexing conundrum, much akin to a riddle woven into the very fabric of our modern existence. The complexities of our age, a fusion of progress and tradition, innovation and nostalgia, doth challenge even the most astute minds, casting shadows of doubt and curiosity upon our collective consciousness.

The matter before us, dear blogger, is not to be taken lightly, for it resonates with the echoes of ages past and the aspirations of futures yet to unfold. Is this enigma birthed from the depths of human ambition, where the seeds of desire and aspiration intertwine with the roots…

The Maker Faire was really fun and exciting for me. It opened up a new part of me that I have never seen before. The maker faire was a very interesting place to look at but at the same time, I was able to inform people about robotics and FIRST. We also had many things that people were enthusiastic about. One activity that we had was the table where you could make your own lapel pin for free. These kids were very creative and came up with many amazing designs. We also had the option for people to look at our robot and the way it worked. As I was showing off the robot, the most asked question was “How…
