On Saturday November 14th, 2009, Team 241 invites everyone to the 1st Annual New Hampshire TechFest! http://nhtechfest.org
NH TechFest '09 will be an all-day extravaganza of enlightening science and technology demonstrations, hands-on activities, and overall cool experiences. We are inviting all middle and high school students and their parents to join us in a day of discovery and learning in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
Along with multiple interactive mini-workshops, there will be displays and demonstrations of the latest developments in science and technology including robotics, industrial machines, safety devices, and research equipment. Many scientific and technical organizations will also be on hand to educate students and parents about educational and career opportunities.

We really don’t mean to keep gratuitously bumping this post, but we thought you should know that the pot has been considerably “sweetened”:
**Tire Warehouse is generously donating over $1800 worth of Craftsman tools as prizes! ** The top three teams will each receive a complete set of Craftsman mechanics tools and a tool chest to keep them in!
So if you were on the fence before - hop on down and sign right up!
