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. A robotics display cannot take the place of a showcase for a school who is not competing in RCX or SumoBots. A school competing at a location other than the STEM Fair is still required to have a showcase at the STEM Fair.
