The Lakeview Museum hosted their National Engineers Day event on February 19th. This event falls on National Engineers Week and attracts several local engineering organizations and companies. The goal is to get kids excited about engineering and science and CIRC was on hand to demonstrate some exciting robots including various robotic displays, the Marble Maze interactive game, and the “U-Drive-Em” combat robots. We had some trouble attracting visitors to our slightly out-of-the-way room but those who stopped by were very interested in our club and expressed great interest in our upcoming Bot Brawl event.
All of the organizations that participated in this event including CIRC also received a proclamation from the Mayor of Peoria! The proclamations were awarded at the February 14th city council meeting. You can watch video of the meeting here. The National Engineering Week proclamation is about 10 minutes in.
A huge thanks to Len Shelton, Mike Dvorsky, and Bruce Stott for helping with the CIRC display. We look forward to participating in this event again next year at the new Riverfront Museum!
