Piper Computer Final Thoughts


I also want to add, that I keep coming back to the Piper Computer just for fun now that I've gone through the lessons.  It is so neat having my own "laptop" that I made myself.  I took it to the Fredonia Mini Maker Faire, where I had my first hands on activity (Make Your Own Vibrobots).  Adults and kids alike loved checking out my Piper Computer while they waited for their turn to make a vibrobot.  Check out the Piper Computer Kit at: https://www.buildpiper.com/pages/piper-computer-kit

Halloween Hiatus






I also carved this pumpkin above for Halloween by myself with no other help.


Below are a couple of photos of me as Junie B. Jones in the school musical.  
I can't post any video of the play for copyright reasons but it was great.

National Robotics Week at the Rochester Museum and Science Center


                                          This day was really fun. The girls i am talking to in
                                          this photo are girl scouts.


                                          I love to talk to people and show them how cool
                                          robots can be.


                                          Talking to people that are the same age as me is a
                                          lot easier because i know what they should
                                          understand.


                                         
It's also important to learn from others, like when 
I was talking to students from the University of Rochester.

For more information about the Bolide Advance Robot, please go to their website at http://www.xyzrobot.com/us_en/product/diy-robot/advance . Again, this is a great robot as it grows with you.  Now I just need to get a 3D printer as I want to create new designs for it's shell.

For schools wanting more information about the Bolide my dad wanted me to put this link in - http://www.exploringrobots.com/index.php/robots/bolide-humanoid-robot.html

Thanks for watching!


In the future I will have more video reviews of the new Meccano Meccanoid 2.0 XL, the Sphero Spark +, and maybe the WonderWorkshop Dash Robot.  Please be on the lookout for those videos in the coming weeks.

What I've Been Up To Recently and The Rochester Mini Maker Faire

Fredonia Mini Maker Faire

At Fredonia I had a crowd of people around my booth for some of the faire. It was fun to talk to people about my robots, but at the end of the faire I had no voice left. I had a talk at Fredonia it wasn't as large of a crowd I had hoped for but it was a quite room  were I could show people my voice activated robot.






Barnes and Noble Maker Faire

 I was invited to the Barns and Nobles maker fair when I was at Fredonia. I gave out allot of Rochester maker fair cards.





Rochester Mini Maker Faire 2016                                                                                                                                        
The Rochester maker faire is the biggest mini maker faire I have both at all year.  Last year I had a both at the fair and it was  a lot of fun, so I hope it is fun this year to.  I will be both 93 at the Rochester Mini Maker Faire.

   Hope to see you there, Rosie
