During the Lunch break (at noon-1pm), there will be a robot showcase in the lunch area. Some veteran teams in the area will be bringing their FIRST competition robots and have people to answer questions about their robots.

We will be offering a Pizza Lunch. If you would like to order lunch through us make sure you do so immediately after you register for your classes. We will not be buying extra pizza for those who did not pre-order.
