Exit 5 Robotics, There at the Science Fair, of Morristown’s Thomas Jefferson Elementary School

Exit 5 Robotics was invited to demonstrate at Morristown’s Thomas Jefferson Elementary School’s Science Fair on March 21st.  Over 200 students and parents attended the science night event.  The gym was filled with nearly 50 science exhibits created by Thomas Jefferson’s students.

Exit 5 Robotics partnered with Garden State Robotics, and Livingston Robotics Club to create a robotics corner in the exhibit.  The Exit 5 Team showed their robots built for the 2011/2012 Lego First Lego League Food Factor competition (ages 9-14).  The team also whipped up an ad hoc sentry robot that patrolled a 4 foot strip of masking tape on the exhibit floor.  Giving something for the kids to look forward to, Garden State Robotics offered drive demos of their VEX robots, focused on middle school and high school students.  Livingston Robotics showed videos and presented literature promoting FLL, FTC, and FRC.

Word on the street is that several teams will be originating out of Thomas Jefferson Elementary for next year’s FLL Senior Solutions competition.  We’re excited to hear the news and look forward to seeing them out and about this fall.
