HESTEC 2009 Community Day at The University of Texas-Pan American offered people of all ages thrilling science exhibits, activities and a chance to meet NASA astronaut Jose Hernandez on Oct. 3. The annual event, sponsored by H-E-B, the City of Edinburg and the National Science Foundation, was free to the public. Pictured is Terri the Robot, a fully integrated robotic device by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration project that helps make science education fun. Terri greeted people at Community Day and also told stories, performed interactive skits and lead a karaoke sing-along. Terri the Robot was sponsored by State Farm Insurance.
