The Robotics Team at Open Day

The Siding Spring Observatory Open Day was made even more interesting when the Supernova Star Squad opened for business.  The Team spent the day demonstrating everything the robot has to offer and a little bit more with many of the Open Day visitors getting more than they had bargained for. The team enjoyed talking to whoever was interested, answered many questions and also enjoyed chasing young children around the Dome with the robot.

A big thank you to the team members who volunteered to help out.
