The Peoria Riverfront Museum hosted Engineers Day on February 17th and CIRC was on hand to show the local community the exciting world of robotics. In previous year’s this event took place at the Lakeview Museum but has moved to it’s new home at the riverfront. The goal is to get kids excited about engineering and science through hands-on exhibits, informative displays, and fun competitions. CIRC brought the Marble Maze interactive game, Wheel-E, an Afina 3D printer, line follower robots, HEX Bug toys, an Arduino-powered LEGO excavator, and lots of static robot displays. A huge thanks to Mike Dvorsky, Bruce Stott, Peter Campbell, and Brian Oleson for helping with the CIRC display. We look forward to participating in this event again next year!

All bi-Weekly build sessions will be cancelled starting 11/29/12 until early 2013. This time of year most members’ schedules become very busy with family trips and holiday activities causing bi-weekly build session attendance to drop. In response to this we decided to cancel our build sessions over a few month period in 2011 and we’ll be doing the same this year.
We will discuss when to resume build sessions during our club meetings in early 2013. Happy Holidays to everyone!
