The kids and I met Jarrod at Naval Postgraduate School yesterday afternoon to attend the Robots in the Roses research event.
While we were waiting for Jarrod to get out of class, Charlotte did some showing off.
It wasn’t long before Jarrod met up with us, and we walked over to the event. There were tables set up with quite a few robots on display. We didn’t see R2-D2, but there were some really neat military robots – unmanned boats and submersibles, mini tanks, etc. There were also some non-military themed robots. We watched a couple robots pick up basketballs for a while.
Even travelling the whole way down the pool capsized, our USV stayed together and finished in 6th place! Lucky for us, our duckie has an awesome lung capacity that let him hold his breath for the whole race! Way to go, #96!
