HighTechScience.org Grants Robotic Wish

   On August 9, 2009 at 12 noon the Jacobs family from New Jersey arrived in Boca Raton, Florida just to see our Robot Collection and especially our fully functional WALL-E replica.  Make-A-Wish Foundation South Florida Chapter
   The family made arrangements with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and it was our absolute pleasure to allow them to come and see what we have knowing they would leave here with memories that would definitely last a lifetime.

   We also arranged to have a Bounce House which being that the family had twin 4 year olds they immediately took to it and had a blast in. The Bounce House was graciously donated by BouncyHouses.com from Jupiter, FL.

   Once word got out we were approached by numerous news agencies who came with reporters, photographers and TV crews. It was a terrific time for all and the family had the time of their lives.

This is why we do what we do.

Having fun with the HEX Bugs from Innovation First. He loved them.


He discovered how to turn the Hex Bug on by himself. Not bad for a 4 year old.
