On Monday, October 15, 2012 team Robolution went to the CA STEM Summit at the Sheraton Hotel on Harbor Island in San Diego. We were the only FLL team invited to the Summit where over 150 people attended. At the Summit we discussed dehydration in the elderly and we demonstrated our robots, “Toby” and “Rocky.” Some special guests at the Summit were Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and the California schools Superintendent, Tom Torlakson.
At the Summit we visited other stations and learned about under water studies of the ocean and saw the High Tech High FIRST Robotics (FRC) team, “Holy Cows” and their robot that can shoot a basketball. I thought the STEM summit was really cool because we got to share what we learned about dehydration and our robots to everyone that were there. We had lots of fun and received a signed book from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar along with one of his basketball cards.
