Take Flight for Kids Demo

Team 254 and its robot, Devastator, had a great day at the 2010 Take Flight for Kids Festival.  We had hundereds of visitors who all loved the robot.  Some of the younger kids especially liked rolling the balls into the robot’s intake and letting the robot suck the balls up.  We also had a large group of team members at the event, allowing us to manage the crowds and run the robot safely.
