Robots attack! High school robotics teams demo at Phoenix Comicon

Local high school robotics teams let Phoenix Comicon goers sneak a peak at their battle-ready robot creations throughout the weekend. These teams get to build, design and battle their robots in local and national competitions.

The students are associated with the program FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) which inspires student interest in science and technology through challenges such as building and competing robots against one another in local and national competitions.

Here’s a few we got to see in action:
