Inventor’s Bootcamp 2015
This year’s Inventor’s Bootcamp ran from Monday, April 20 to Thursday, April 23 at the Mammoth Library. Participants split into six teams and, taking their inspiration from the movie Interstellar, designed a probe and a mechanism to deploy it to test “asteroids” for natural resources.
Team members created parts using 3D printers, adding other parts—anything from boxes to zip ties to string—and programming their probes to drop down onto and return from an “asteroid.”
