On Sunday Nov. 6, the Bay Area Science Festival put on a 10-day long event called Discovery Days, in which organizations from all over the Bay Area put together science and STEM-related experiments and activities for the community. On Sunday, November 6th, at AT&T Park in San Francisco, there were many booths, including those of NASA, Stanford, the Tech Museum, and many other companies. One of our favorite booths was about extracting DNA from your cheek cells, in another you could learn about the planets, and much more! Our robot was situated right at the entrance, at Willie Mays Plaza, next to the Stanford autonomous race car.
Our team drove the robot around and hanged tubes on homemade pegs, and deployed the minibot on a makeshift minibot pole. We showed off our 2011 competition robot and our minibot to people from all over the Bay Area, and even people visiting from outside the country. We had over ten girls show up to run our booth, along with several parents to chaperone. It was a lot of fun, and we were videotaped by UCSF, Sri, ChinaTv, and the Science Festival.
