To influence more students through STEM, WIRED invited A FIRST Lego League team made up of homeschoolers and other students from 3rd through 8th grade called the Xtreme Hydronauts to come visit and see the team members in action. WIRED members discussed with them the different aspects of the robot, and allowed them to actively engage with a sample robot. The prototype robot also performed many of the functions that were available, including the rake-design for the end-effector, and the motors and chassis.
