The Loudoun STEM Day Geared UP! started with the help of NOVACC, SySTEMic Solutions and the Loudoun County government was a huge success. Hundreds of people of all ages showed up to learn and play with STEM tools and toys. Geared UP! had a great time talking with everyone about FIRST and Ashburn Robotics and letting the kids play with both our Craft-A-Bots and some prebuilt SumoBots. Without a doubt, the 3D printer was one of the greatest attractions, and while there were several at the event, ours was one of the most open ones, so it was easy to see what was going on. We met a lot of great people even said hello to Chairman York, without whom STEM day would never have happened. Just this past May, we met with him as well as a number of other interested parties and proposed creating a Loudoun STEM day. Just five months later, it became a reality. With the first annual Loudoun STEM Day such a success, we’re eager for next year and hope to bring even more robots to show off.
