LigerBots Open House for Prospective Team Members, Sept. 17

The LigerBots — Newton’s award-winning FIRST robotics team spanning Newton North and Newton South High Schools — will hold an open house for prospective team members on September 17, 6:30-8:30PM at the Newton South HS wood shop (Room 9170, next to the auditorium). The LigerBots are “more than robots,” with activities as diverse as engineering, running a business, programming, marketing, photography, writing, public speaking, and 3D printing. At the open house, high-school students can learn about the team, meet team members and mentors, drive a robot, use power tools, do engineering challenge games, create marketing materials, and eat dessert! For more information, email
