High school students across Texas travel to Abilene for robotics competition

High school students from all over Texas came to town this weekend, to test their engineering knowledge.

ATEMS High School hosted its first robotics competition.

12 teams battled against each other with robots they designed, built, and programmed.

The tournament is one in a series of events supported by the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation.

Top performing teams will head to the Robotics World Championship.

That's where hey will be able to challenge their peers from over 30 countries around the world.

"They have small balls that they have to move. There are about 8 inches in diameter and there are 9 flags the robots have to move around," said robotics coach Larry Haney.

The event wrapped up at 3 p.m.
