On August 23, Team Neutrino will be presenting and demonstrating at the Iowa State fair. We will be sharing some booths for the whole day with several FTC teams, FRC 4646 ASAP and FRC 967 Iron Lions on the Grand Concourse. We will be giving a presentation with the FRC teams on the MidAmerican Energy Stage from around 9:00 to 10:00. We hope to see you there!
From June 1st to June 12th, Team Neutrino taught a LEGO Mindstorms Robotics class as a part of the local “Super Summer” program. About 30 students entering grades 4 through 8 learned how to build and program LEGO NXT and EV3 robots. The lesson plans for this class were both developed and taught by members of Team Neutrino. In addition, members of our team helped to teach the Beyond an Hour of Code and Engineering .101 classes. In Beyond an Hour of Code, students learned basic programming skills using Scratch. In Engineering .101, students learned engineering and safety skills through taking apart old appliances and devices, such as computers, record players, cell phones, and radios.
Today we visited Danfoss to thank them for their continued sponsorship. Because of some problems with the driver station, we were not able to demonstrate the robot. We still had a great time presenting about who we are and what we do. Thank you Danfoss!
On last Thursday, our team demonstrated our robots in the for the Biorenewables Complex. This was a great way to thank Iowa State for the space that they have generously loaned us this season. Despite some difficulties with our robots, we were able to show students and professors who we are.
Thanks to the Iowa State Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering for the photos!
