Robotic groups from throughout Volusia gathered at the Museum of Arts and Sciences to show what they can do.
While Gabe Lewis was looking at a cockroach and a praying mantis with a digital microscope, Violet and Julia Poe were at the rocket launching table creating their own cardboard rockets. Around the corner the Spruce Creek S.M.A.S.H. team’s robotic creations were tossing balls into the air and following a cardboard bone. Outside in the courtyard, Seaperch, underwater remotely operated vehicles were submerging in a pool of water.
All of these activities were part of Nick Serle’s Eagle Scout project taking place at the Daytona Beach Museum of Arts and Sciences.
Nick, a 17-year-old resident of Flagler Beach and a member of Ormond Beach Boy Scout Troop 403, had been thinking about a robotic festival for nearly a year. Involved with robotics for several years, Nick wanted to offer other STEM students, and local businesses like Thompson Pump, a venue to show different robotic applications.
“I wanted to have it in Flagler Beach but there wasn’t enough room,” Nick said. “Then I talked to the museum.”
The event not only provided the room needed for the nearly 20 interactive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), it also became part of the MOAS Engineering Day.
More than 40 people became involved in making his project a reality, and the event attracted local residents and visitors to the area looking for something different to do.
