Robo-Tec '11, the first annual Robotics Technology Exposition and Challenge will be held in Pocomoke City on Saturday, May 21, 2011 at Midway GM/Toyota, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. This event, sponsored by Midway, Eastern Shore Robotics (ESR), the Mid-Atlantic Institute for Space & Technology (MIST), and the Delmarva Education Foundation (DEF) promises to be the premiere youth technology event in the Delmarva region.
Robo-Tec '11 will feature the robots built and used in this year’s FIRST Robotics Competition with our three teams from the Eastern Shore represented.The Worcester/Accomack, Northampton and Salisbury teams will demonstrate their robots, and team members will be available to discuss the build process for their robots along with highlights from their competition experience.
Please join us in supporting and honoring the Eastern Shore Robotics teams. Information will be available at the event on how students and/or schools can become involved in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) based programs that DEF, ESR, and MIST support.

I'm excited about this event, which promises to be creative, helpful, and fun. See you there, I hope!
