On Friday, October 4th, LVL1's own Brian Wagner will be teaching a workshop on Sumobot Construction and programming! Brian spent his summer vacation designing and prototyping the "BaxterBot" board, a circuitboard which drives motors, IR sensors, sonar, and many, many more, and is Arduino compatible! For a mere $60, you get all the electronics you'll need for a Sumobot! Chassis isn't included, but you have full access to the LVL1 boneyard, and all the tools you could need to make your own.

Only 9 seats remain as of this writing, so hurry up.
All you need to bring is a laptop and your imagination. Don't know how to solder? Not a problem! This is the workshop you need to get ready for LVL1's 4th annual SumoBot competition and Halloween party!
