Travel Info

Parking at McCallum is broken into several small lots.  The image below shows the best options for parking as well as the event entrance location.  Although there are a handful of spots on the drop-off loop, parking on the west side of Sunshine (A) is your next best option.  The lot accross the street (B) belongs to McCallum, and the faculty lot (C) to the north is also a good option.


The event will be live streamed at the McCallum Robotics YouTube Channel
