This past Monday, the team visited with Armstrong Elementary’s SAC students. We took both this year’s robot and the Angry Nerd from last year.
Both robots were received very well, and the kids had a lot of questions for us! They seemed very interested in robotics and impressed by our presentation. We also shared information about the FLL programs they can join, and generally raised interest in STEM programs.
They had a lot of fun, and we had a great time there!
First and foremost thank you to all the teams that participated in this year’s Underground Society of Animators Award! The judges at Theory Animation were very impressed with all the submissions and we are happy to announce the winners for each category:
Technical Award Winner: Team 008
Creative Award Winner: Team 1720
Judge’s Award Winner: Team 250

Congratulations to all the winners and we’d like to give a huge thank you to our supporters of the award Theory Animation and AutomationDirect! We couldn’t have done it without you.
