Robotics & STEM Showcase
Robot and STEM Demonstrations and Activities for all ages
Play (and learn) at Valleyfest Robotics and STEM Showcase at CenterPlace Regional Event Center. This FREE event, brought to you by Exploring Families and Events On Fire, will entice all ages to engage in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) plus robotic and drone activities. Participants include:
- xCraft, the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) design company based on Coeur d’Alene, who made a $1.5m deal with all 5 sharks on Shark Tank, is back at Valleyfest this year. They will show off their X PlusOne HD drones, including the Build Your Own model, plus their newest PhoneDrone Ethos.
- MINDS-i Robotics of Liberty Lake has a revolutionary vision of what robotics should be. Meet their robotics experts who can show you how to build the most unique robot you can conceive using their patented quick lock construction elements. Today, MINDS-i hauls robotics into the 21st century by empowering users to create and modify as they see fit. This is robot building using sophisticated Arduino open-source technology that breathes new life into modern robotics.
- We all know drones are amazing and fun, but who knew they were educational too! PCS Edventures/Thrust-UAV of Boise will demonstrate their new Discover Drone STEM program. PCS Edventures is a leader in education technology with their classroom, after school, home learning, and digital learning products for K-12 students.
- Robotics students will showcase robots they have designed to play – come experience for yourself and interact with robots! Observe several types, sizes, and shapes of robots from local high schoolers, some as big as refrigerators, featuring awesome students from Lewis & Clark High School, Spokane Valley Tech, and West Valley High School.
- Spokane County 4-H is always a favorite STEM Showcase contributor with their WeDo Lego Robotics. They show how elementary science can come to life through hands-on tasks, real-world projects, and relevant technology that engages students.
- Fred Stahl, of Partners For Science, will once again show off his popular pets: Madagascar hissing cockroaches, one of largest species of cockroaches! He always brings a plethora of science fun with him wherever he goes, including his hands-on roller coasters for marbles.
See you all at CenterPlace Regional Event Center on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m!
