Two big notes before we begin the review:

  1. After we finalized denkbots’ design for our BattleBots Season 3 application, we found out Season 3 got cancelled. With this news, we spent a lot of this year focusing on new projects and searching for ways to fulfill our mission to Learn, Create, and Inspire!
  2. As this year began, several members of our team ventured into a brand new world for us: Science Communication and Science Advocacy. We are a very irreverent bunch… we are also very passionate about the power of STEM to improve people’s lives… we hope you have enjoyed the addition of our unique perspective into these worlds of Science Communication and Advocacy; If you have please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
