Laguna Beach Library presentation

We brought R2-D2 and WALL•E to the Laguna Beach Library for another educational presentation about how the robots were built and how we use them in the community. People of all ages asked great questions and enjoyed getting their photos taken with the robots afterward.

WonderCon Anaheim 2018

We shared our R2-D2, BB-8, WALL•E and Mouse droid at WonderCon in Anaheim. Mike appeared as part of a droid builders panel to help people interested in building their own droids. The robots spread a lot of joy to attendees, as usual. We always enjoy seeing other’s creativity and putting smiles on people’s faces.

Thanks to our WALL•E Builders booth sponsor, Progressive Automations.

Home Schoolers enjoy droid visit, Anaheim

Students and families from the Orange County Department of Education's Community Home Education Program enjoyed a visit from R2-D2 and our mouse droid. Mike shared stories about how he built them and how they are used in the community. He encourages kids to welcome failure as an option as they pursue challenges, and share their interests with others. The children especially enjoyed getting up close and personal with the droids, looking inside the mouse droid as well.

Walt Disney Travel office visit

Our family brought our 3 Star Wars droids to visit our fun-loving friends at the Walt Disney Travel office in Anaheim. Mouse especially enjoyed spreading joy by driving around the office. A staff member playfully gave it a Mickey Mouse ears hat, which stayed on all day. They held a creative robot-building contest from recycled materials, and had come up with some very clever slogans for the Mos Eisley Chamber of Commerce. A fun day drumming up excitement for the opening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
