  • Robotics Display

    Fayette County Public School STLP groups that are competing in the RCX or SumoBot competitions at the STEM Fair may elect to have a student-created display instead of a showcase. This unmanned robotics display would highlight the robotics program at the school and help others to better understand the benefits of robotics.
