Discovery Science Center 2014: Day 2

Today was the 2nd day of my second visit with the R2 Builders to the Discovery Science Center in Santa, Ana CA. It was just me and Victor Franco with my dome and his R2D2 (yesterday, it was R5D4). He gave two presentations and R2 got lots of pictures. There was this one other robot not with us called the "Track Rover" that was there last time in 2013. We don't know anything about it but it looked funky. It hung around our area the whole 4 hrs.

I also took a detour to the gift shop and purchased a 70 cent model of the International Space Station

Discovery Science Center (Santa Ana, CA) 2014: Day 1

Today was my second time doing an R2 event at the Discovery Science Center. I was joined by Victor Franco, Roy Powers, Matthew Hendricks, and a few other builders. Victor gave two presentations (one of which I went on stage for) and the rest of us answered questions afterwords. I also saw the Mythbusters exhibit, it was small but they had lots of props. The day ended with a small dinner with Roy, Victor, and I. This event was from 12-4pm and I will probably go tomorrow with either the dome or the frame.
