This year's event features Spring-Ford science teacher and NASA Solar System Ambassador, Dan Leppold. Come out and see space artifacts such as meteorite samples and a piece of the Space Shuttle. Program a camera on the International Space Station, and take a photograph of a landform or city on Earth! This is a great opportunity to learn about NASA initiatives in space robotic mining for use on the moon, an asteroid, or even on Mars. This is an exciting day of STEM not to be missed!

Cheer our students on, after months of hard work put into designing, building, and programming their robots in preparation for competition season. The Spring-Ford High School Rambots are now 6 teams and 40 students strong!

Registration and inspection begins at 7:30AM.
