Another robotics “battle” in Hawaii… it so cool… :D. Here the news from kgmb9.com:
Dozens of teams are getting ready for a battle of the brains at the Stan Sheriff Center. They spent the day practicing for the regional robotics competition.
The event includes 700 students from 37 high schools throughout Hawaii and the mainland. They had six weeks to design and build their robots.
The machines score points in different ways; like knocking balls off the overpass, throwing them over the rack, or picking them up and putting them back in place.
“There is a lot of good competition but we’re just gonna try our best and we have a great robot and a great team so hopefully we’ll all have fun and do great.”
“It’s meant to get students interested and excited about careers in engineering and other technical fields and certainly I think this program really works.”
The competition starts tomorrow morning. The final rounds will be on Saturday afternoon.
The event is free and open to the public.
