This event will take place in the newly-completed STEMZONE buil-ding on the Schreiner campus. This event is free and open to the public.

This event will showcase robotics design, build and the last competition challenge for each of the three teams demonstrating. First LEGO League, open to ages 9-14, and First Tech Challenge, open to ages 12-18, will be on-site along with coaches Dan Apel and Marcus Goodyear.

VEX Robotics World Championship team - Alumination Robotics - led by Ryan Smeltzer will be onsite along with coaches Kathleen Gately and Linda Smeltzer.

In addition to building robots, these programs include aspects of STEM skills, teamwork, and scholarship opportunities. Robotics team coaches will be available to answer questions about team membership and/or forming a team. Team members will lead the demonstrations and answer questions about their robotic team experiences.
