This week the Gearheads and several other central Minnesota teams will be at the Benton County Fair. We are having a FIRST Showcase at the Fair. Tuesday was opening day at the Fair and the Showcase started out with the Gearheads demonstrating our robot. At mid-day, C.I.S., from Becker, brought in their robot to demonstrate. Then in the evening, the Gearheads demonstrated again. Sauk Rapids Storm Robotics robot was also there, on display, and a few team members were there to talk to the passersby.

The teams will be back on Sunday. The other days of the Fair will be devoted to the other FIRST programs; FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) and FIRST Lego League. Each of those programs will have 2 days where they are the focus of the Showcase for the day.

We would love to see you. We are in the Discovery building. Stop by and say ‘Hi!”
