SHPE and ASCE Volunteers for December 15 Robotics Competition

ASCE’s rookie high school robotics team, Renaissance Robotics (RR), and Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico- Orlando Campus (PUPR) are hosting a tournament on December 15. Without this teamwork, Orange County would NOT have enough tournaments for our league, which has a very large percentage of rookie teams compared to other areas. (Usually rookie teams are not encouraged to host a tournament but we (Orange County league) were desperate for volunteers and locations. So we want to sincerely thank ASCE, PUPR, RR for stepping up and ask SHPE to join the fun!!!)

We need ~30-40 volunteers. Please let us know if you are able to assist
