Hemet Library Presentation

We took our favorite droid to the Hemet Public Library's comic convention, where Mike did a presentation on how he build his R2. Afterwards people took photos and we met several members of a local high school robotics team. They showed us their two robots and Mike let them drive R2. Fun to be a part of this community event.

Hemet Library

We gave a presentation on how our R2 was built and the adventures we've enjoyed with him at the Hemet Library as part of their summer reading program, A Universe of Stories. Lots of great questions from the audience of all ages. A local 9th grader brought her First Robotics robot to share.
