Having lunch on MARS

Hundreds of people in Wichita Falls had lunch on Mars today.  Which is great, because Mars needed the money. 😉

MARS is Maniacs Attempting Robot Science, our new middle/high school robot building team.  They were trying to raise money to travel to Sherman, TX for a BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science and Technology) competition.  The kids worked really hard on their Labor Day weekend hot dog sale (which included pizza, nachos, cokes, chips and cookies).  They raised, in total, over $450.  Much of that is thanks to the generosity of generous contributors, both individuals and corporate sponsors.  Thank you Coca-cola, Cicis pizza, and Atwoods. 

They also ranked 3 separate tv spots for their efforts.  Hey, robots are cool.  So are Martians.
