Mechanical Advantage has been supporting this event since 2019 by providing hands-on robotics experiences for attendees of all ages. Attendees can have fun learning about robotics while operating table-top robots and driving a small, crowd friendly robot with soft tires that was designed just for large events like this. We have historically operated out of a 10’x10’ space.

Biodiesel & Algal Studies Group

Since 2009 Castle Park High students, with Dr. Pomeroy of UCSD, have learned to produce biodiesel from vegetable oil. Our booth demonstrates the step-by-step process of biodiesel synthesis, discusses the advantages of biodiesel over petroleum and outlines the ease of production. Our booth includes CAICE researchers who provide demonstrations concerning climate change and atmospheric chemistry. We also partner with Algenesis who demonstrate biodegradable materials that mimic plastics and foams.

Naval Information Warfare Pacific

AI vs Human: Can you sort objects (different vehicle types) faster than a robot? The human participant will be blind folded or obstructed from the view of the bin of different objects. The goal of the challenge will be for human and robot to sort the objects(vehicles) into three different bins in a set time limit (1 minute). This fun interactive experience highlights the core disciplines (computer science, robotics, and machine learning) of our science and engineering workforce.
