Forgive me - this was my day since noon when the first robot kid got off for Christmas break:
|The Robot Room - Each team has a zone where they are running |
their robots in the competition area - imagine that most weekends there are between
10-20 kids in this space. Today it was 13 and six parents.
|The nights checklist of work as well as scores from the runs the kids were doing. |
This was the best thing we ever made when renovating the house - a sliding white board.
It tucks into the wall and disappears. The kids love it and fill it daily.
|The big robot guys are acting like judges for the presentation practice. They have been thorough it so much and are the best trainers ever. They take it so seriously - the mentoring was amazing with things I never thought of.|
|Running the robot over and over to get the 'pit crew' smooth.|
I will be back on giveaways on Sunday - Lynne Anderson of the Sampler Consortium is meeting me right after the competition for dinner. So it will be a full day. So I will have to double up with some extra giveaways that day!!
Of course what you can't see is that in the dining room there were frostings boxes going out and a packing of Cabinet of Curiosities Kit 1 with an elf of mine working today there. There is a shrink wrap station in the living room. Think I will forgot wrapping paper this year and just shrink wrap their gifts! ha ha
Now off to bed, I seem to be getting punchy. :-)
