Join us at the VEX Battle of the Bots and OPEF Open House January 26!

Hi friends:
All are welcome at the Oak Park Education Foundation’s annual VEX Robotics competition, the Battle of the Bots, 9:00 am on Saturday, January 26 in the Julian gym, 416 S. Ridgelandin Oak Park. Come see OPEF teams from Brooks and Julian, plus (new this year!) guest teams from Oak Park, Chicago and the surrounding suburbs, competing with robots they have been designing, building and programming since October.
Also on January 26 in the Julian Atrium, OPEF will hold an Open House from 10 am til noon featuring educational and fun activities from our art, science, architecture and engineering programs. It’s free and will feature hands-on projects for kids ages 5-12. Kids can design and build with LEGOs, experience physics with an astronomer, make a bonsai tree, create a landmark building for our skyline, and operate a VEX Robot.
The event will draw more than a hundred Robotics competitors as well as their cheering coaches and families. There will be a jumbo projection screen featuring live video and scoring information, an emcee and DJ as well as refreshments for sale. Many thanks to our sponsors: Marion Street Cheese Market, Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation, Aria Group Architects, The Rotary Club of Oak Park-River Forest, Automated Lifestyles, Forest Park National Bank & Trust Co., Hoy Landscaping, Fitness Formula Club Oak Park and Starship Restaurant & Catering.
