Very Cool Kids - Southside High School Robotics

I attended a reception this evening for the InnoVision Technology Awards finalists.

As normal, InnoVision has identified a very impressive group of organizations enhancing the level of innovation in the region.

And then there were the students. Two members of the Southside High School Robotics Team were at the reception. Their project was a stair climbing robot which could carry firefighting gear up stairs and injured people down. It's good enough that now they are working on commercializing it.

Wow! Very very cool. The kids that is.

The director of a corporate research facility was so impressed he offered them each $70,000 jobs on the spot.

He was just kidding ... I think.
