RoboDay at You-Do-It Electronics Center

We learned too late to let you know ahead of time, but here’s a peek at yesterday’s successful RoboDay at You-Do-Electronics Center (YDI), in celebration of National Robotics Week. Robotic STEM enthusiasts attending included the all-girl Winsor Wildbots FTC team #13620 from Winsor School in Boston, GearTicks FTC team #6055 from Lincoln, and 8-year-old Max, who demostrated his creative robotic-hand project. Attendees had the opportunity to network with featured exhibitors Empow Studios, iRobot, Expedition to STEM, and Velleman. Look for the event next year. In the meantime, YDI intends to be not only be a place to shop but a source of STEM awareness and inspiration for the community. YDI is at 40 Franklin Street in Needham, between Rte. 128, the Charles River, and Highland Avenue.
