We are excited to announce we will be partnering with Palo Alto Comunity College to bring you the 2021/2022 Southwest Robo Showdown!
Due to COVID 19 complications we will be following all applicable health guidelines for the safety of all. What I can promise is that we will be having a competition of some kind. The type of competition will depend on the status of COVID-19.
