Cedar Valley STEM Festival
In November, we attended the Cedar Valley STEM Festival. This annual festival occurs to raise interest in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) within the Cedar Valley. We have participated in the festival every year since it began, meaning this was our fourth year attending. At the festival, we demonstrated our 2016 robot Cricket and talked with people about FIRST, FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), and the Iowa Regional. We allowed children to look at our robot and gave a brief explanation of what it was. We partnered with team 5837, Unity4Tech from Waterloo, Iowa to do this.
