Every year the things that robots can do continues to amaze us. The Hi Fives, the Grand Valley's only FIRST Robotics team, has been working hard to get their next competition robot ready and you are invited to see the unveiling.

The Hi Fives will be showing off their new robot at the annual Robot Reveal Dinner on Wednesday, February 22, at the Colorado Mesa University Innovation Center in Piñon Hall. For a simple donation, you can enjoy a spaghetti dinner from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. There will also be a silent dessert auction, with all proceeds going to keep the Hi Fives going.

The night will end with the unveiling of the 2017 robot. Our local team is just one of over 3,000 teams from around the world competing in the FIRST Robotics Competitions. This year's event is entitled "Steamworks". The team will first compete in the regionals in Salt Lake City, UT and Denver, and are hoping to make it to the 2017 World Competition later in the year in St. Louis, MO.
