   The Bay City Public Library is hosting a “Robotics Fair” starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Bay City USEO Service Center. 
   The event will include presentations of this years’ FTC game, Rover Ruckus by local area teams. 
   Robotic teams on tap include Bay City High School Robotics, Palacios High School Robotics, Angleton Christian School’s “Revelation” team and Calico ISD’s team.
   Plans include a demonstration area and Rover Ruckus scrimmage field.
   Rover ruckus is geared toward ages 5 and up for participation activities.
   “But all ages can attend to learn more about robotics and see our demonstrations,” said Brittany Miller, BCPL aide and BCHS Robotics representative.
   “I decided to head up this event because after joining Robotics this year, I realized how much people didn’t know about it. I felt that, we as a team should reach out to the community to show them how much fun robotics is.
   Everyone thinks robotics is a really hard concept, or something that’s only seen on TV like robots built with flame throwers and chainsaws, but there’s many things that go into it. Including not even involving science or computers,” she added.
