Ever wanted to drive a robot or see one up close? Head over to Kingswood Community Center this Sunday, November 4th from 1 to 5 pm. You’ll get a chance to be up close with robots built by local high school and middle school students.
Yes, you read that right. High School and Middle School students. These students participate in the international FIRST Robotics Competition. Each year they get a new game and have to build a robot with no blueprints. Local teams competing in the FIRST Tech Challenge, a competition for students aged 12 – 18 will be showcasing this year’s game Rover Ruckus.
Other things to see at Kingswood include a virtual reality demo, a FIRST Ladies (an organization for girls in the program) meet up, and various STEM activities for local kids to participate. This event is presented by local company Tapp Network.
