Robot Rock 2018
December 9, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 10:30 pm - $15.00
Get ready to robot, because we’re about to rock our way to rural South Africa! There are impoverished kids in need of STEM education, and with your help, a group of engineers will head over there with Austin-based non-profit Science In A Suitcase to teach LEGO robotics.
Welcome to our 4th annual Robot Rock concert fundraiser, which brings in about 150 people and raises money to help send local engineers overseas to teach robotics to under-served kids! We’ve been working with orphanages in India for the last 3 years, and some of those kids are now in college for engineering! We’re truly helping break the cycle of poverty for them, which is really amazing. Now we’re bringing this sustainable robotics education program to South Africa.
Not only will there be amazing bands, solo musical performances, and stand-up comedy, but we’ll have more than $2000 in silent auction items for you to bid on and win. Enter our raffle for killer prizes including a custom drum head signed by all the bands!
Come early, late, or the whole time! Some silent auction items will have early end times, so you can win even if you can’t stay late. Woohoo!
Hungry? Cluck-N-Burger will have yummy food when you decide that Oskar Blues’ delicious beer won’t cut it alone for dinner.
$15 gets you in for all 9 bands, access to the silent auction, and 1 door prize ticket. Questions? Email [email protected]
