Nebraska Robotics Expo 2016

LOLUG will be displaying our LEGO creations at the Nebraska Robotics Expo 2016 at the Strategic Air & Space Museum.

Information about the Expo

The Expo represents a collaborative effort between
the SPIRIT Project and the GEAR-Tech-21 4-H Youth
Development project, and FIRST® LEGO® League to
create an outstanding robotics competition for about
1,000 of our local and greater Nebraska area youth.
As you cheer on our future scientists and engineers,
we encourage you to visit the CEENBoTTM Showcase,
FIRST LEGO League events, sponsor booths, and
museum exhibits.
