I recently attended a back to school STEAM night with my son. As we were leaving I ventured with him down to the library and saw many kids laughing and having an unreal time with this thing that was moving around the room. Actually two older kids were using a remote control joy stick to control the "Robot". It was hysterical to see the kids laughing and trying to feed the robot kick balls and the robot would then throw them back for the kids to catch. My son had so much fun and can't wait to get more involved and see the "Robot" again.
