Hi All!

Figured some of you might be interested, this coming Saturday the 23rd
at 6pm, Archer and I will be giving a presentation about robot testing,
RoboCupRescue, and the Rapidly Manufactured Robot Challenge at Balticon,
a long running (this is their 54th year!) annual science fiction
convention in Baltimore!

Of course gathering restrictions are still in force so the entire
convention is taking place virtually, in Zoom and Discord this year.

This all-ages convention is somewhat unique in that it has a strong
science-for-the-masses track, with everything from dinosaurs to
spacecraft (NASA engineers often feature among the presenters and this
year is no exception). We're hoping to leverage this interest to get
some more folks joining us in RMRC!

See for details! It's free this year so if
you want to get your science fiction geek on, this might also be a good


- Raymond and Archer
