Humble origins to amazing second prototype. The build party on Saturday March 23, 2019 was a huge success for an amazing group of 5th graders.

Now we have more work to do… there are several math issues to deal with, some engineering problems, the science of autonomous behavior … the list goes on and on. This group is ready for it though!
