Addition to My Lab

Many of you who follow my blog will remember my post on my Robot Lab. I've just made a really cool addition to my lab thanks to my wife. Her business had some old glass door metal storage shelves that they were getting rid of and she got them for me!

I have been looking for something like this for a while, but these are better that anything I could have hoped for. They look like something out of IBM headquarters during the early days of computers.

Now all my robots, equipment or whatever I put in them can be out of the dust and at the same time where I can see them and show them off. It is a combo storage space and display case. Super cool, eh?

Robot Camps Underway

Last week (April 27-30), we held the first to the Monroe City Schools' Robot Camps. It all began at Wossman High School and I think the students had a great time. I know they learned a lot about their Scribblers! Each of the students left with their own Scribbler Robot, a workbook, a USB adapter and cable, a padded lunch box for storage and a flashlight (for light following)!

This week (May 4-7), we will be a Neville High School.

Jodie Moorhead from Instructional Technology is my partner in running the camps and he got some great pictures and video. I will try to post some of them later.
