As part of the challenge, Trobotics Inc. has also been busy organizing outreach events at schools and throughout the community.
At the events they showcase their robot by letting visitors drive their prototype. They also hand out informational brochures about their team, and B.E.S.T. robotics to encourage interest in science, technology, engineering, and math.
The Trobotics Inc. team knows that every good company needs capital to run its business. The team has been selling Hexbugs at Athens Bible School, and throughout the community as well as seeking sponsors.
Trobotics Inc. was recently awarded a $2,000 grant from the Pathfinder Chapter of AUVSI (Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International). AUVSI offers the opportunity to earn educational grants in the pursuit of expanding knowledge or identifying promising technologies applicable to robotics programs.
