Tom Frampton’s cousin, Julie Panus, is a science teacher. Julie teaches a Mindstorm Madness Camp for fifth, sixth, and seventh graders over the summer at Plymouth State University (PSU) in Plymouth, New Hampshire.   Using the LEGO Mindstorms, campers worked in teams, learned to build and program robots. Teams were challenged to solve real-world problems with their bots, in both cooperative and competitive challenges.

Naturally, due to Tom’s inquisitive nature, he asked how he could get involved. Tom decided to challenge the students to program a bot to write the word Fanimation. If they were successful, they would each win an Urbanjet fan from Fanimation. As you can see below, we are now a few Urbanjet’s short!
