Fundraiser and Robots

Today we had a very successful fundraiser and had about $100 in profit!  We sold adult grilled cheese sandwiches (cheddar, gouda, prosciutto, and apples) for $5 with the prosciutto and $4 without.  We also had brownies for sale, baked by our treasurer, Katie Vaughan, and they were delicious!  The event was a hit among both students and faculty so we are hoping to do something similar soon.


We also played with the Wonderworks robots a bit, which was definitely entertaining for our club members!  In the future we plan to explore the API and apps further so that we can bring them into local schools and teach kids some coding skills!

Tomorrow we will be picking up our new banner, which we are excited to see and use at events.  We will also be helping out with the Lady Cougars STEM Day in the arena at the College of Charleston tomorrow.
