Grace’s First Robot

StorySkip to comments

Hey guys.

So while I’ve been playing with my R2-D2 mod, my girlfriends granddaughter, Grace, has shown a big interest in robotics and wants to one day build a full size one to help her mum. She is only 9 years old and has lots of ideas. So when she found out I have built robots, she wanted to get envolved.

So together, we set about building a Boxbot. She loved it (I enjoyed it myself actually, lol). Anyway, it still has some work to be done, but we set about doing a Dance Demo. Here is a video of the lil guy in action...

@Steve G that's great news! I would definitely encourage Grace to work toward a career in this industry. It's growing fast and we are going to need many passionate and creative people such as Grace to add their energy and ideas into the mix. This industry is both exciting and very rewarding. It's an amazing feeling to help create something from the idea stage, iterate it and and when it's complete deliver into a student/enthusiast's hands for their education, enrichment, and enjoyment. Working on a very talented team doesn't hurt either ;)
