I am on an all girls’ robotics team named Double X in New York, NY. Students in this team come from two all girls’ schools - the Brearley School and the Chapin School.
We participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). We have SIX weeks to build and program a fully functioning robot that performs a certain task. We work SIX days a week, at least four hours every day we meet: 4-8 pm Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays; 10-4 on Saturdays and 12-4 on Sundays.
Happy Lundi Gras! Friends, #Glitter, sequins, & lights are a few of the reasons I love #MardiGras! I’m going to be finding #GlitterEverywhere for the next 6 months. Also, I may have twisted off my hand to get a big bead during #bacchus. Amputee perks? #amputee #AmputeeProblems #cyborg #technology #glitteristheherpesofthecraftworld (at Uptown Parades)
A conspiracy theorist’s YouTube video about how this ancient Greek grave marker depicts a laptop more than 2,000 years before personal computers were even a thing has resurfaced, and went viral over the weekend.
We obviously don’t need to tell you that this definitely is not a laptop, and no, the ancient Greeks didn’t possess the technology to go time travelling in search of a better way to communicate with the Oracle of Delphi - a divine being who acted as the official conduit between man and the gods - but what the hell is it?
Currently on display at the J. Paul Getty Museum in California, the marble carving entitled “Grave Naiskos of an Enthroned Woman with an Attendant” has been dated to around 100 BC, and sourced possibly to Delos - a tiny island to the east of the Greek mainland with enormous mythological, cultural, and archaeological importance.
via Instagram’s @willstanhope - For the last few days we’ve been checking out this cool mountain crag called Ben Lomond. Yesterday I climbed this pitch: The Wizard. Really technical and a tiny bit spooky! Thanks for getting up early and trudging up there before the sun hit @sonnietrotter. @bearcam photo. @arcteryx @fiveten_official @metoliusclimbing @maximropes www.epicbeta.net/blog/
