Robotic competition teaches students about engineering process

MONROE, MI (Toledo News Now) -

Ever see a robot play frisbee?

It all happened on Saturday at Monroe High School during the 2013 Michigan Advanced Robotics Competition.

38 teams made robots designed to fly frisbees. Some came from as far away as New York and Wisconsin.

Qualification matches began on Friday and elimination matches were on Saturday.

The teams competed against one another during the school year.

However, this weekend's event was held just for fun.

"The reason we do any of the robotics competition is for the students and for the learning process that's involved with robotics and the engineering that goes into it," said Kyle Christensen.

The students are mentored by engineers from companies and colleges.
