ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Did you know this year’s FIRST Robotics international championships will be held in St. Louis April 27th through the 30th?

Representing the St. Louis regional will be a alliance of students from Hazelwood Central, University City, and Camdenton high schools.

That team captured Saturday’s regional title with an entry called “4-H Laser.”

More than 500 students from nearly fifty high schools took part.

Each team had six weeks to design and build its own robot.

The Channel Cats from St. Charles won the Regional Chairman’s Award and O’Fallon Township High School’s team won the Entrepreneurship Award.
