Titanium Robotics Team Attends the Maker Faire

Titanium Robotics Engineering Vice President Stella Yao describes the many features of Joys[Ti]ck at last weekend’s Maker Faire.
This past weekend, Titanium Robotics attended Los Angeles’ third Maker Faire, an event meant to celebrate all aspects of STEAM ingenuity. The event, held outside the Central Library in downtown Los Angeles, featured a total of 105 booths and presentations that showcased a multitude of inventions. For example, there were humanoid robots exhibiting facial recognition technology, incredibly intricate Lego models, and wacky inventions like a peanut butter pump.

At the event, Titanium Robotics set up a booth that displayed brochures, newspaper clippings, THE competition robot Joys[Ti]ck, and the T-Shirt cannon [Ti]rone in conjunction with the the robotics teams Milken Nights, Lockdown, and Robovikings. Children and adults were able to learn about the various aspects of each robot necessary for it to function, components of a functional FRC Robotics team, and robot control systems. Neighboring booths gave the team shirts that were then shot by young, aspiring robot drivers.

When on break, team members were able to experience the wonders of STEAM by wandering to observe other creative booths or signing up for workshops. One booth had a man folding detailed origami figurines, proving that creativity in STEAM can extend beyond electronics.

In the words of Business President Kimia Hassibi, “Maker Faire was truly a STEAM event” that allowed Titanium Robotics to spread robotics to others while getting inspired by other admirable people.

This Saturday, look out for “Walk Huntington,” where team members will be showcasing robotics to local business owners in the hopes of receiving donations, sponsorships, and partnerships.

Titanium Robotics is a team consisting of over 100 students, mainly from San Marino High School, who come together with a common interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Students learn from professional engineers and mentors to build and compete in the annual FIRST Robotics Challenge with a robot of their own design. Programming, electrical work, computer-aided design, and business management are all run by student representatives, making the entire organization student-led from start to finish.
