Robots to invade The Historical Electronics Museum at 10am on May 8, 2004 (Linthicum, MD)

On May 8th The Historical Electronics Museum in Linthicum, Maryland will be swarming with walking, crawling, hopping, slithering, rolling,
clanking, fire-fighting and metal crushing ROBOTS.
Robot Festival 2004 will host Robots that mow the lawn, robots that vacuum the house and robots that seek out and destroy other robots.
This FREE event features Robots built and operated by local school kids and the not-so-young kids-at-heart!
New to this year's event is the addition of an 8' X 8' arena where bots up to 30lbs will strut their stuff. Celebrity Bot Teams and their bots include, Team Radicus with their bot Oxymoron, Team Anarchy with Total Anarchy, Robotic Hobbies with Consistently Inconsistent and Gross Tonnage with Manic have already confirmed, with more teams, drivers and bots confirming every day.
Also returning this year are Technology Clubs, Robot Clubs and FIRST Teams from elementary through high schools from Anne Arundel, Baltimore and Harford counties. Their self-propelled robots and Lego MindStorm creations have been designed using the latest microcontroller technology and programmed to perform specific tasks such as searching through a maze and extinguishing a fire.
