On Tuesday March 24th, the team headed over to the high school to show Guido to the community for the first time! The robot has been sitting in the bag at the shop over at the middle school since the end of build season and finally was let loose!
But first before Guido could stack some totes, some assembly was required. He is a bit taller this year than our robot Thor from last year, because of this we had to move some parts around for it to fit in the bag. Once he was all set up and we had communications, we drove around and showed Guido to the community.
During the Empty Bowls event the kids were chasing Guido around,
controlling the robot with Bryce and giving Guido hugs. Guido doesn't
just stack totes like any normal robot, he also gives hugs!
Not only did Guido show off his stacking talents but also helped the community recycle!
That doesn't look like the normal game piece, right?
