Benson High School Cafeteria – 546 NE 12th Ave, Portland, OR 97232
ONLINE SIGN-UP FOR Benson BotFest 2017: We just need to know TeamNumber or Team Names, Affiliation, approximately how many students/adults in total will be attending, an Adult Point of Contact for your group, and which workshops you may be interested in attending.
