East Tennesseans have an opportunity support a great cause by competing in “Robotics Rilvary” at the Robotics Revolution on Saturday, August 2, 2014. The event will provide participants multiple opportunities to learn about coding, Lego leagues, robotics, 3D printing, drones and industrial and technological advances.

Robotics Revolution, presented by the Tennessee Space Grant Consortium, is a project of The Muse Knoxville and is being coordinated by NeighborMaker Events, LLC. It is being held in the Jacob Building at Chilhowee Park in Knoxville.

“Robot Rivalry will provide a fun way for business teams to compete by building a simple, motorized ‘robot’ under the leadership of an experienced youth mentor,” said Ellie Kittrell, executive director of The Muse Knoxville. “It’ll be a great way to support science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) efforts in East Tennessee, while competing to reign supreme in head to head competitions with other businesses on the ‘robot runway.’”

Robotics Revolution is a day-long event, from 10am-4pm. Admission is $6. For more information, call 865.594.1494.
