Saphira Fire Testing and Robot Base Build

On Saturday, April 27, 2013, we took Saphira to St. Francis High School where the Robotics Team there helped build a robotic base for Saphira so that she can move. We also had the Mountain View Fire Department come out and go over our safety plan, so of course Saphira had to give them a performance:

The firefighters brought MTV Engine 2 out, and gave all the kids (and the adults) in impromptu tour and demo of the fire engine.

Many thanks to the St. Francis Robotics Team and the Mountain View Fire Department!

Here are a few photos of the early part of the base build (I needed to leave early):



And St.Francis’ robotics hackerspace:


More base build photos later!
