Kendrick Castillo Memorial Tournament

Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science, technology, engineering and math, Energy Day Colorado will sponsor the inaugural “Kendrick Castillo Memorial Tournament” – a fully sanctioned FIRST Robotics tournament that will feature 30+ high school robotics teams from around the Denver Metro Area. If you know anyone interested in robotics, this is something they won’t want to miss!
