So… science (applied science that is) and robots, not so much my thing. However, my middle son, the musician physicist is in US First Robotics this year. I like the idea of seeing a robot that his team has built and programmed to do whatever this year’s challenge is (sadly I don’t recall at the moment) and I would love to see the competition.
This is build season (about three concentrated weeks of work on the robots) and here’s the problem. I don’t get it. The science and the robotics. I suppose like several other times in my children’s lives, I will simply stand on the sidelines and cheer (whether I truly understand or not).
