SparX at The 'Maker Fair'
On November 8 the Plank Road Cub Scouts hosted a technology fair featuring seven interactive displays of CNC equipment, 3D printing, and Robotics to foster interest in STEM for the scouts. The SparX Team presented our robot, and with a finger on the kill switch allowed the scouts to drive all over the gym.
