Thirty-three robots and the high school students who built them descended on the Missouri S&T campus Feb. 26 for the national FIRST Tech Challenge competition.


This year’s competition, “Get Over It,” required teams to use their robots to score points by emptying baton dispensers filled with 6-inch-long PVC tubes and scoring them in stationary and rolling goals.

This is the first of three years S&T will host the national competition.
