He is so happy!
And of course, Fred and I are very proud of him! (-:
His project was based on whether a robot (his Robosapien Robot) could effectively handle objects as efficiently as a human.
As you can tell by his smile, he is so excited. Check out his red 2nd place ribbon, we stuck it on his project board.
Fred and Michael got some one on one time as they went up to the ceremonies tonight so that made it even more special. I wish I could have been there, but we didn't find out about it till last minute, and I was babysitting. But forunately Fred did take pictures for me!
This project really has sparked an interest in robotics for Michael as he wrote the company that made his robot, and one of the head engineers from Hong Kong wrote back directly answering his questions. He was so excited that they took the time to write. Unforunately he was unable to include the letter in his project because he recieved it past the deadline.
So tonight we are celebrating because a little celebrating and a lot of encouraging can make small dreams become big dreams.
