Magnolia is a small seaside village of Gloucester located on the Manchester town line. It is a community pretty much unto itself which includes its own library and neighborhood beach.
In Magnolia you will find some of the most beautiful seaside scenery in Massachusetts that is rich with large historical homes and buildings. It is here you will discover the Hammond Castle built by the inventor and modeled after a medieval castle complete with a seven story pipe organ and dungeon!

This will be an interactive workshop with Vecna's lead engineers and roboticists. At this meeting, the Robot Race lead will discuss the rules of the event, reveal the course, and provide a list of robot kits that can help hobbyists and students get a head start on building their robots. A tour of our machine shop and demos of our robots will follow.
About the Robot Race
The Human 5K is a family-friendly 5K race for individuals, families and teams. Dress up as a robot or bring your unique gadgets and enhancements for special prizes.
OR register a robot for the Robot Race. Must have a driver (out of line-of-sight for part of the challenge) and a chaperone for the course. Drivers will be seated at the control center. Autonomous or teleoperated robots will complete an L-shaped course as quickly as possible. Robots will be required to receive a “Dixie” cup of confetti at the corner water stop. Robot categories and waves may be established based on the qualities of the entrants.

Many thousands of live public science events engage millions of people every year.
The formats vary incredibly: stage shows, storytelling, and multi-modal performances; science cafes and other dialogue events; science festivals and other massively collaborative initiatives; science by stealth, science busking, and similar street level interventions; and many more–some of which purposely defy categorization.
The largest reach tens of thousands in a single day. The smallest might serve only an intense handful. Some are commanded by teams of professionals, others are driven by passionate volunteers.
Yet we all have much in common. The basic practical challenges of organizing a live event can be remarkably similar across different scales. The same emotional roller coaster is familiar to anyone that has taken responsibility for running a live event. Evaluation findings and research questions often transfer well between event forms. The science matters deeply to us all, but not necessarily more than the social experiences we carefully craft. And we tend to be outgoing, fun-loving, and just a bit daft.
So let’s get together!
