Event Details

ALL Families in School District 308 and Friends are invited to Tour  the Home of the National Championship-bound Oswego 308 High School Robotics Team - The Gearbox

Date:  Upcoming Tuesday, April 9

Time:  7pm - 9pm 

Location:  The Gearbox

71 Stonehill Road, Oswego


Come on out for this special opportunity to tour the Gearbox! The Team is getting ready to enter the National Championship competition. The Gearbox is where the team works to build the robot.  Students will be at various stations sharing what they do.  There will be many stations, and you will be surprised at how much goes into building the robot as well as preparing for competitions and other important aspects of the team.  Don't miss this special treat for younger students and students interested in joining the high school team next year or in the future! Younger students who attended the PACE Science Night may be very interested to see what goes into building the robot they saw.

Please register for the tour here. Please sign up for the 7pm-8pm time slot, or 8pm-9pm time slot.  You do not have to keep this time. Walk-ins are welcome!

Also on the same day, April 9th, is the Team's fundraiser to raise money for the National Competition. Please dine at Chick-fil-A on 2740 US 34 (Douglas Road & Route 34) anytime from 6am-10pm.  Please be sure to mention High School Robotics when ordering.

Grab a bite to eat at Chick-fil-A, and come on out to the Gearbox!!
