It was an exciting weekend at the Pacific Science Center, with the first ever Special Olympics Unified Robotics Championship! Unified Robotics is a program in which local Seattle students with and without intellectual disabilities work together to design robots. The program’s inspiration comes from Kendall Foster, a high-school teen with autism who couldn’t find a robotics team to join. Her sister Delaney worked together with a high school teacher to develop the Unified Robotics program, modeled after Special Olympics Unified Sports.
