Get ready for a sunny weekend full of Robots, Runts, the Republic, and then some. Grab your friends and head on out to Irving because we have a full list of activities to choose from. These are some events we recommend, but you can also visit our website at where you'll find a wide array of things to do. It's the weekend, so go play outside!

This competition inspires young people to embrace science and technology, combine it with the excitement of sports, then design and build an industrial-sized robot. The teams compete with each other to accomplish different challenges, including a heart-stopping head-to-head combat.
