    PVEF is launching a special robot event to be held at the FLL Jr. Expo on May 4th but open to robot enthusiasts of all ages: the LEGO Sumo Bot Competition!

    Lego Sumo Bot is a sport where two robots compete in a head-to-head match following the basic system of traditional human sumo matches. Robots are allowed no weapons. The sole purpose is a pushing match between the two robots to force the other from the Sumo Ring.

    No age brackets – everyone invited

    Parent/child teams are great

    Lego Mindstorm robots only

    We're even offering a Workshop on April 6 so we can help you review the rules, program your robot, and practice your moves. You can even check out a Mindstorms Robot to use at the competition if you don't already have one (must already be registered for the competition.)

    You can download the info flyer here.

    Email Robotics Chairperson Darren Patnoe for more info:

    Sponsoring a team costs $350. Individual members of sponsored teams do not have to pay participation fees.

    The public is invited to the Jr. FLL Expo....well, two Expos, actually, on Saturday, April 30 at Las Colinas! We have so many Jr. FLL teams from within our own district and visiting teams, that we are having two that starts at 11am and another immediately following at 3:30pm.

    If you don't know what Jr. FLL is all about and are wondering if your child might like to participate next year, this would be an excellent time to come and see what Jr. FLL teams do and what participating on a team really means! 

    Jr. FLL teams, don't forget to come a little early to check in and set up before the start time. See you there!

    Coaching a Jr. FLL team is not at all hard and we want to help you make it into a fun and meaningful experience for both you and your team! Come to the Coaches' Workshop on Saturday, Feb. 27 to learn how. No prior coaching, engineering, or teaching experience is required.....just a high tolerance for LEGOS!

    Time is 9am - 11:30am. Location: 602 Anacapa Dr. (past Camarillo Heights School), the home of long-time coach and Robotics Roundup committee member Debbie Hager.
