Visit to Brookhaven

We visited a Brookhaven, a senior living home in Lexington, and set up a robotics expo of sorts- we ran our two robots, displayed our Creo designs to residents, and set up other stations and activities, like a Rubik’s Cube solver and the Lego segways. It was lots of fun! Some of the seniors had worked in engineering before and told us lots about the work they did years back.

Super servos!

 

 

 

We wanted to test the strength of some of our servos by having them wind up a very heavy weight- our Block Party robot. We were able to lift it completely off the ground with an HS-755MG servo! (page here) We are hoping to utilize the servo’s considerable strength in our robot design.
