Open House – July 19th

Saskatoon Techworks will be hosting an open house on Saturday July 19th in our space at 509A Gray Ave. The specific times have yet to be determined, but it will likely run something like 10am-5pm. There will be several of our members’ projects on display and also some “hands on” activities such as combat robots (courtesy of the Saskatoon Combat Robotics Club). We’ll also have the BBQ running for most of the day so there will be food & drink available for purchase. More details to come closer to the date, but go ahead and mark your calendars!

Robot combat event May 18-19!

kilobots

Do you remember the television shows Robot Wars and BattleBots from about a decade ago? Ever wanted to see that kind of robot mayhem in person? Well now’s your chance! On May 18th & 19th at The Centre Mall, the Saskatoon Combat Robotics Club (aka Kilobots) is hosting its 25th event.

I know what you’re thinking – how is it that something this awesome has been going on for so many years and I haven’t heard about it? Well, once you’re done beating yourself up over it, clear your schedule for May long weekend. The combat arena will be set up in front of North Shore Outfitters and fights will be taking place every hour on the hour. And, if you’re so inclined, it’s not too late to start building your own bot to enter in the event! Head on over to the Kilobots site for more details.

CSSS Career Fair – Tuesday February 12th

Still on our high from Spectrum, we’ve decided to set up a booth at the Computer Science Students’ Society career fair this year. No, we’re not hiring, but our group is a great way to further your education after (or even before) graduation, and we don’t look too bad on a resume either. If you’re around the University next Tuesday, you should come check us out! Things kick off at 10AM in the 3rd floor Spinks computer lab. More details can be found here: http://csss.usask.ca/Career%20Fair.php.
