Robo Dweebs Host “FUN”draiser

On Saturday, April 27th, the Robo Dweebs will be host­ing a “Bricks, Builds, and Bots ‘FUN’draiser”. Spon­sored by Lovin’ Lake County and Northern STEM Robot­ics, the fundraiser is for Robo Dweebs’ upcoming season. The funds will go towards acquiring equipment for com­munity outreach opportunities, and helping rookie team Agate Prime and fellow NSR team from Cloquet Retro Ro­botics. “We are all working to­gether to bring Two Harbors a fun day of bricks, builds, and bots,” Jenna Udenberg said.

Both exploring activities and competitions will be at the event, and the exploring ac­tivities are free and open to the public. Activities include seeing robot demonstrations, solving jigsaw puzzles, and playing with LEGO Jr. and Duplos for the youngest at­tendees. A community mu­ral will also be created from bricks, offering an artistic con­tribution to the event. The an­ticipated measurements for the mural will be either two feet by two feet or four feet by two feet, and it is still looking for a display location in Two Har­bors. Fundraiser “goodies”, in­cluding art, snacks, build sets, and minifigures, will be avail­able to purchase.

Competitions are also open to the public participating for a fee, as they have potential prizes. It will cost $25 for either the morning or afternoon wave, or $40 for both waves and the option of the Grand Master Build. There will be one larger competition of the Master Build, and three smaller challenges – Mini Master, Blind Build, and Mystery Mayhem. Registration for the competitions is required via QR code or email, and the registration can be found here: https://forms.gle/GG9qGGfcFxPsDJ7Y6.  

The Bricks, Builds, and Bots “FUN”draiser will be held at the Two Harbors Community Center from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. Youth ages 14 and under are required to be supervised.

Since the current forecast for Saturday is in the low 50’s and rainy, it sounds like a perfect time to gather together and create some builds.

Hello! My name is Haley Searls. I’ve loved writing from an early age, though my nonfiction writing at five years old consisted mainly of weather and gardening reports. I still have some of those early articles: “It’s sunny.” “It’s still sunny.” “It’s raining.” I’m glad to say my writing has improved since then. I wrote a guest post for the Silver Bay Public Library blog, and was the writer/editor of the newsletter for my American Heritage Girls troop. I have been writing for the North Shore Journal since June 2022. Besides writing, I love reading, drawing, photography, music, and spending time with family and friends. Two books that have really influenced my writing are Reforming Journalism by Marvin Olasky and Writer to Writer by Bodie and Brock Thoene. As a journalist, I want to share positive community interactions and inspire people to make lasting connections. Article topics that interest me are ones which show community activities and involvement. Such articles include community events, youth accomplishments, library programming, small businesses, local history, local artists and authors, art programs, and cultural events such as theater and dance. If you have an article idea, email the North Shore Journal with my name in the subject line! I look forward to hearing from you!
