Thank you to all who came out to the FIRST Robotics Community Fair that was held at the CLOUD901 Teen Learning Lab at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library.

A big thanks to L. Morris who organized the event, the staff of the CLOUD for hosting and the event and following FRC Teams for demonstrating their robots:

Team 5002 – Collierville Dragons
Team 5045 – White Station SpartaBots
