It's been a lot of planning, organizing and soon to be setting up and it's almost here! The 4th annual ROBOCON Festival!
This is a free festival we put on every year for our community. It showcases all levels of FIRST and VEX Robotics, with a full FRC field for other teams to come out and be a part of. We utilize each robotics field to have attendees obtain their ROBO Driver's License by driving each of the different robots on their competition fields. For the highest level, FRC, attendees must watch a match first, get a little coaching from the participating drive teams and then drive the robots in a full competition match! This is by far the biggest attraction!
We also have a wide array of interactive and engaging STEM related activities and exhibitors for the public to enjoy.
It'll be a week of setup and getting everything in order, but by Saturday we'll be ready! Looking forward to seeing the other 18 FRC teams who are coming out to play on the Steamworks field one more time and all the generous volunteers who offered their time to help make this event a success.
Many thanks to the View Newsgroup staff who helped immensely this year! It's going to be an even better event due to your amazing help and efforts!
