This weekend was Applefest – a local fall festival that our school always participates in. This year we asked if we could join them and they were happy to have us! We even got to hang out with Team 1100 – The T-Hawks. It was fun to see them and see their setup. They actually had a fun remote control car (think old big wheels) that they drove around the festival. Oh and we couldn’t have asked for nicer weather. Even thought we didn’t have our robot running (no power, and not in a great location – had we tried, we would have ruined the wheels to the point that we could no longer run it in our gym or cafeteria), the kids did a great job in explaining how our robot worked and we got some nice foot traffic. We have 3 more festivals coming up this fall and we’re excited!

Here’s our day in photos!

All set up, first thing in the morning.
