Saguaro High School Robotics and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) students and teachers will participate in the City of Scottsdale’s Spring Training Festival from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22 at Scottsdale Civic Center Mall at 3838 N. Drinkwater Boulevard in Scottsdale.

 Saguaro High School students and teachers Susan Lindberg and Chris Brandt will display two robots and showcase their STEM clubs.

Children and adults can play with the smaller “VEX IQ” robot, which has a claw to pick up objects, by using a controller similar to that of a PlayStation videogame console.

The Lunch Bunch STEM Club students will demonstrate how to do “engineering on a dime.” Children can also make balloon racers out of life savers, tape, straws, balloons and craft sticks.

Admission to this award-winning event, which combines the past, present and future of baseball in fun and unique ways, is free.
