JD Robotics was invited to exhibit at the 2014 Salt Lake Comic Con FanX even April 17-19.  We and the other teams took it upon ourselves to spread the word about FIRST Robotics and let some kids shoot the balls.  We also found out that exhibit halls like the Salt Palace are a wifi mess.  By switching to the 5Ghz band we were able to smoothly operate our robots and if a problem arose the "Auto Channel Select" feature of the D-Link routers on the robots would hop to an unused channel on reboot.

 

 

Update:  We made the video highlights from KidCon!  We start to appear at 0:54 in the video below.

 

Juan Diego Robotics is a zero block class and club that is taught after school starting spring semester.  Students may elect to earn a computer credit for the class or simply join the club for yearly robotics fun.  Students learn about principles of locomotion, engineering, programming, strategy and manufacturing/fabrication.
