We're so excited that ROBOCON is this Friday!  And we're even more thrilled that the LASA Robotics group will be bringing some of their robots to demo at the event!

LASA Robotics is the robotics team of the Liberal Arts and Science Academy (formerly the Science Academy), a public magnet high school in Austin, Texas. Founded in 1983 by Tony Bertucci, the team is dedicated to teaching engineering principles to students, both within their own team and the community. They currently have around 40 student members, participate in three competitions, and make community outreach a priority throughout the entire year. 

As part of their community outreach, they've held robot demos at schools, libraries, community centers, science fairs, book fairs, movie theaters, parties, churches, Austin events, engineering trade shows (like NI Week and SolidWorks World), and UT science lecture series.
