Return Of The Robots
The whizzing and whirring of robots returned to Willamette High School, which hosted a giant robotics tournament.
42 teams showed up with their student-made robots.
The VEX Robotics Tournaments follow a strict format, with two robots on each team facing off on a 12 x 12 mat.
They score points on caps, flags, balls and platforms. Click here for a video explanation.
Willamette’s Robotics students work for months building their bots, sharing tips, and practicing as teams.
The goal is to promote innovation, build problem-solving skills, encourage teamwork, and take part in some fun competition.
