In April of 2011 the Boy Scouts of America announced the availability of the Robotics Merit Badge for Scouts interested in Robotics This merit badge requires that the Scout become familiar with various aspects within the robotics field, such as electronics, mechanics, data acquisition (sensors) and software programming, among others.
The Science Night at Westmore team has kindly invited Chibots to come and participate in their Science Night 2012. There will be an entire gym and hallway reserved for this event. The area will be filled with science projects stations that will provide demonstrations and hand-on activities. The following description was sent by one of the organizers:
River Forest Pack 67 of the Cub Scouts has kindly invited us for a 20 minute robotics demonstration at their weekly meeting. They would like to see the robots that we make and for us to share interesting information about robotics. If possible, can we organize a mini-competition so that the Cub Scouts can a see what a competition looks like?
