  2. Robotic Telepresence - Attendees operate pre-built Lego Robotics using MIT-App Inventor coded controllers and compete with others in a Robot Battle Royale, all from a separate room using Hangouts for multiple camera views. Attendees also navigate an obstacle course with a Double Robot that we use for homebound students for additional telepresence experience.  youtube.com/watch?v=QmUtBk6lT18
