We are going to do a Judo-bot build on Saturday 13 July at Quelab 1p-4p. Fight the Judo-bots after building them! If you saw the Judo-bot at ACE, you know what they are. See http://www.instructables.com/id/Hydraulic-JudoBots/ for the build instructions. This is a parent-child (8-14) activity. Kits are $20. We should have an EventBrite up Real Soon Now, or just send an RSVP to board (at) quelab.net with your name and contact info. See our flicr page around http://www.flickr.com/photos/killbox/8690739509/in/pool-quelab for pictures!
UPDATE: We had a Great turnout of 6 Judo-bot builds! One parent bought a kit at the event for himself! A member brought his two kids at the last minute (Thanks Matt!). The pictures start at http://www.flickr.com/photos/abqjohn/9282600040/in/pool-quelab – all of the parents and kids had a great time. And thanks to JT for the help.
We *really* want to do a “Teach the Teachers” version of this. If you are a teacher, or a principal who wants this sort of event, please contact the Board (board (at) quelab.net) and I (bandit) will work with y’all to help put an event on.
