At the Downtown Huntington Beach Halloween event on Main Street, the Hawkbots exhibited their 2016 bot, Esa Playa to little and big Spooksters alike. Hawkbots passed out candy and buttons to costumed children and entertained characters including Robin Hood, Dracula, Alice in Wonderland, and more.
At some point, Esa Playa got a bit too spooked, but luckily, experienced members were able to fix the robot up. During that time, the Hawkbots explained to parents what the robotics team does, how these kinds of outreach events help expose the community to STEM fields, how the team will exist when their little Spooksters attend high school, and why to choose Ocean View for their BOULD Robotics team.
Overall, it was a pleasant way to spend Halloween as a team; Many new and experienced members aided in spreading Halloween spirit with a touch of the STEM fields and community service that we offered on Halloween afternoon.
Happy Haunts from RoBOOtics Team 4619!
