Check out our new eNewsletter that talks about the two new robot kits due out this summer. The VEX IQ kit and the LEGO EV3 kit.

Thanks to the help of some alert coaches, we were made aware of an issue with the online payment for the Maine Robotic Track Meets. We had incorrectly set up the online payment page so that no matter which track meet you selected what arrived in your cart was the South Portland track meet. While teams planning to go to the South Portland track meet did not have any problems with this, other teams were not as happy. We have fixed the online order page and teams can select the track meet of their choice.
Because this issue delayed many teams from be able to register in the last few days we have extended early registration until March 29th, giving teams another week to register early. I apologize fot
Dear robot enthusiasts! The spring track meets are fast approaching and the early registration ends Friday 3/22/2013. So don't delay (it will save you some money) and register today or tomorrow.
After Friday the registration goes up by $5/team member.
Check, PO or online payment are accepted, so no need to wait for a school check, you can register with your school PO.
Just click on the Track Meet option from the menu above.
See you in South Portland, Ellsworth or Oakland!
