General Info

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.  It can be anything from a modified normal competition to suit social distancing,  a hybrid local/virtual competition, or an online skills competition with judged awards.  Please be patient and remember if we can make it through this year we can do anything!
