SAM – teaching children about SAM

A group of children (primary school age) visited us. These young children already engage in an environmental group. We made up several educational games. Thus they were able to learn about different climate conditions. Furthermore we built a "mini SAM" with each and everyone of them. It was an exhausting, but really fun day!

Student Robotics – starting to build the chassis

We started to build the chassis of our robot. As an advantage with designing our robot with a modelling program, we could measure the necessary sizes for the actually building. We decided to use wood for the material because it fulfills our requirements. Further pictures incoming as soon as possible! (author: Daniel)

Student Robotics – solving the weight issues

We had a huge problem with the weight of our robot a few years ago. Maybe you remember: Our robot drove weird turns and we lost the knock out match.
