Robotics Event

This year's Robotics Event was held at the Municipal Auditorium in Downtown Oroville. Students of the YMCA group spent the day designing and creating their own robots. After looking over the materials given each student  sketched out their ideal robot(s), one stationary and another which would include an engine. Once finished with their sketches they got to work, setting their plans into action.
 
The robots will be entered into the Gridley fair, which will occur August 26th-29th. Students will receive their submissions back after the fair has concurred.
