Robotics competition

(4/26/13) More than 12,000 K-12 students from around the country, and around the globe, are gathered this weekend at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis for the FIRST Robotics Championship. Teams compete in different classes with robots they've built from the ground up over the past several weeks to perform different assigned tasks, like shooting a frisbee through a small slot or dragging themselves up a wall.
