ASU organizes a robotics competition for middle and high school students
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) – Students from several Black Belt and River Area schools competed in the 30th annual MGM Best HUB competition at Alabama State University.
Participants had to design their own robots to complete the field challenge designed by the engineers.
Several school systems, including Pike Road, Wetumpka and Montgomery Public Schools, participated in the robotics competition at ASU.
E’Lisa Warren, a student at Montgomery Public Schools, said seeing her competition made her nervous.
“I’ve never done this before,” Warren said, “It’s my first time.”
The robotics competition not only teaches students how to build robots, but it gives them skills they can use in the future.
“As society evolves, we are going to depend or become more dependent on our science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” said competition director Robert Green.
Green said Alabama State, which hosts the competition, is also helping recruit more students into the university’s science and technology programs and its business marketing programs, helping retain talent. in the river area.
