Talent Competition 2004

November 20, 2004

A fine time was had by all watching some robots do "talented" activities on Saturday at The Science Place. A total of eleven robots were entered each with an interesting talent the builder got to show off.

I think tapes will be available from Cindy if there is enough interest, see Cindy's earlier email on the topic.

Thanks to all who helped setup and haul the course materials. Thanks to all who brought a talented robot to show off.

John Drummond, President
