Nevada County Fair Grounds
The second annual Nevada County STEAM Expo will happen again this year to celebrate STEAM opportunities in Nevada County. ACME was at the inaugural event in 2016 and we're looking forward to returning again this year to demonstrate the robot and talk about our season. This is one of our best recruiting events, with all of the middle school and younger students in attendance.

Grass Valley, CA
The Curious Forge is the local maker space in Grass Valley CA. Once a month they host "Nerd Night" and ACME Robotics has been invited to demo their robot and discuss their 2016-2017 season with the Forge members at the upcoming April event. We're excited for this opportunity to share our passion for robots with the Forge crew.

Nevada County Library
One of the highlights of our season every year is the opportunity to attend an assembly at the local middle schools to demonstrate the robot and the highlights from our previous season.
The kids love having the opportunity to try their hand at running the robot through a maze.
If you'd like to have us attend your school assembly please reach out to us!
ACME Robotics is planning to host a week long summer camp targeting 4-8 graders this summer. Our intent to leverage the LEGO Mindstorms robotics kits along with the competition field from this years FIRST Lego League competition to offer a compressed week long build and compete experience for the campers. Our mission is to get the kids excited about FLL and to start teams at their local schools in the fall.
Stay tuned, we are still in the planning phase for this event, but it's going to be exciting.
