Come play "Krazy Kubes" and see robotics demonstrations by several 2016 FTC, FRC, and FLL robotics teams from around Minnesota. Stop by and get information on how YOU can start or join a robotics team in your area! This is a FREE event, but we encourage you to bring a canned food item for our PROP food drive! The LazyBotts would like to extend an invitation to all MN FTC teams to bring their robots to EP center for this event. They can have one table per team set up if teams want to come “show off” their robots, outreach activities, trophies, etc. and let people drive their bots via Bluetooth .
