Melissa Paterson discovered her son’s love for robotics Saturday when she happened on the Meet the Robots event taking place at Kukui Grove Center. Melissa McFerrin-Warrack (nope, she was busy selling shopping bags at the Kauai Community Market!) said since the robots have all returned from their Oahu competition, the robotics alliance decided it was a good time to get people to Meet the Robots.
