The Green Machine returned as invited exhibitors to the Science Museum of Minnesota for the annual Girls, Science, and Technology event November 12th, hosted by Fox9. This is the second year that the team has showcased a robot at the event, which was geared towards girls of all ages.

The event turned out to also be a great way for Girl Scouts to earn their STEM badges. Throughout the day, Team 1816 spoke with more than 50 girls from a dozen Girl Scout troops who were interested in completing the badge by learning more about robotics.

In early August, 1816 drove to Northwest Minnesota to spend a weekend with teams 5172 - Gators, Greenbush-Middle River, and 3750 - Gator Robotics, Badger. The teams (1816 and 5172) got along so well at the MSHSL FIRST State Robotics Championship that both agreed it would be great to have a summer retreat that would focus on specific aspects of the Robotics Competition.
