Hemet Library

We gave a presentation on how 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.

Laguna Beach Library presentation

We had a great audience at the Laguna Beach Library for our presentation on R2-D2 and BB-8. Lots of good questions. One father and son returned for a third time at this library. A group of young girls enjoyed saying goodbye to R2 as he left the library. Thanks to everyone in Laguna Beach for making us feel so welcome! We always enjoy spending the day in your beautiful community.
