Description: We demonstrated our robots at a large community festival in Longmont Colorado.

The festival takes place every year and spans many blocks on Main Street. There is a large turnout

in the community and people come by and ask questions about robotics. We show community

members, usually kids, how to drive the robots. This year we used robots from 2014 (Aerial

Assist) and 2011 (Logo Motion). We use this as a recruiting tool to reach more members of our

community and to promote robotics as an educational tool in our town. In addition to staffing our

own booth at this event, Up-A- Creek Robotics students helped to staff the St. Vrain Valley School

District booth (a sponsor of ours for 11 years) to describe technology programs in the district

Number of people in attendance: >10,000

Years: 2013, 2014, 2015
