Subject: Showcase event at Leicester Space CentreHi everyoneWe have received an invite to join in with a robotics weekend - see below:"The National Space Centre in Leicester is hosting a robotics weekend on the 17th and 18th May. It will be a family orientated event with the aim of providing an entertaining spectacle for the public while at the same time being informative and inspiring to children and parents alike. We are happy to be working with some of the largest groups highlighting robots from science fiction, space science, television and fan culture as well many independent robots built by individuals and school teams. The format for the event will feature a variety of robot exhibits including a Robot Wars style competition, robot build workshops, craft sessions, guest speakers and a showcase of Robocup Junior Soccer, Dance, and mini-sumo. We estimate around 4,000 people attending over the weekend.
I was wondering whether there was a micromouse team who would be interested in attending the weekend and showcasing micromouse to the public? If you are interested in attending and have something you think might be of interest to families and robot fans please let me know as soon as possible so that I can make arrangements."
OK, I know this is yet another weekend - and is tightly sandwiched between Minos'08 and UK Micromouse 2008 - but it is a very good opportunity to show our wares ...! I am happy to arrange things and to transport a maze to Leicester if they need one ( didn't they give their maze to RHUL?). Anyone interested in putting up a united front please let me know asap. I shall be asking the biped, sumo, and antweight guys out there to join in as well, if they are not already.
