Local robot to compete at State Fair Aug. 27

Team 3038, representing North Branch and Chisago Lakes Area High Schools, dropped their robot off at the State Fair on Aug. 14.  to be entered and judged in the mechanical division and be on display in the Education Building throughout the fair.  On Aug. 27, the robot will be competing at 10 a.m., noon, and 3 p.m.

Each robot in the competition will be competing individually using the skills that were components of the FIRST competition.  These include shooting baskets, balancing on a bridge, and crossing a center divide.  One additional skill has been added and that is precision parking in a corner.

Each day of the fair, three robots will be competing with the top 3 robots invited back on Labor Day for the State Fair Championship.

Team 3038 invites you stop by the Education Building any day of the fair and watch the competition and view the robots.  Look for “3038” on the bumpers to identify our local robot.
