Mini Maker Faire

On October 13, Team SPORK attended the Charlotte Mini Maker Faire at Discovery Place. This is an event where various engineers, companies, and artist come to showcase their inventions and experiments. This was the team’s third year attending the faire and we were excited to bring our new summer bot, SPORKreach. The adults and children attending the fair were able to drive the robot and SPORK members talked to visitors about robotics and the FIRST program. This was a great opportunity to show what SPORK can do and to inform more of the community of the great FIRST program.
