WAYNE, Neb. (KCAU) – Groups of high school and college students showed off their technological skills as part of a friendly robotics competition at Wayne State College.
Wayne State and Northeast Community College celebrated over a decade of the NECC-WSC Robotics Competition Series on Monday. The action-packed day was a scrimmage for robotic teams to test their skills before moving on to more serious competitions.
“They get to work together as a group and solve problems. We have hardware issues and software issues, and they get to collaborate and have fun doing it,” said Molly Curnyn, Wayne State Robotics coach.
About six colleges attended the event, as well as several high school teams.
Organizers say it takes at least 40 hours to build a robot.
