Atruim Hotel and Conference Center
1400 N Lorraine St
Hutchinson, KS 67501
NOTES: This is the place we stayed last year. It has a fun indoor pool area, lots of open space for gathering, Free breakfast, etc.
This hotel is about a 30 minute drive from most gyms we will play in. However everyone loved this location and situation better than anything we could find in McPherson.
Some families choose to stay over on Saturday night rather than come home late after the game. If you decide to do this, be sure to make the appropriate reservation with the hotel.
If you have more questions please call Christy Mitchell (785) 760-4947
BUILD YOUR OWN ROBOT: FREE ONLINE CLASS FROM SUPERCHARGED SCIENCE
Click this link:
Your kids will learn about:
- What a robot is and what they are used for in real life
- How robots work using electricity, motors, gears, pulleys, wheels, pneumatics and hydraulics.
- How school robotics teams are now run like sports teams, but for kids who like science (plus learn real-world hands-on STEM skills). And, you don’t need to attend a school to be in their after-school robotics program (It’s where all the Brainiacs hang out).
- Aurora will even guide your kids through building a working robot and give them plans for several more.
This will only be available online until Thursday night.
After that, it will be taken down, and all the free extra science lessons that go with it will be gone too, so please watch it now.
Also, about 47 minutes into the class, there is a special link to download some additional free science lessons.
Here’s the link to it:
