Discovery Centre Robotics
Halifax Discovery Centre hosted a LEGO weekend on the 2nd and 3rd of November 2013. Acadia Robotics Director Gary Walsh was onsite to talk about the Jodrey School of Computer Science’s role with FIRST LEGO League, Robofest, NSCC, and the Acadia Robotics Championships. Local Lego Group NovaLUG brought their Mindcuber (a Rubik’s cube solving NXT robot) as well as a Lego space shuttle. While the Mindcuber solved the Cube for the audience, Acadia’s RPC Director solved another Cube freehand, and explained the various steps leading to the solution. The purpose of the Discovery weekend was for people to get inspired by the various things featured on the special weekend, and then find out that there is a place to take that enthusiasm and work with Lego Robotics.
