High tech robotics event inspires students

Warren robotic event

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – The National Packard Museum opened its doors Saturday to host the 3rd annual FIRST Robotics Roundup.

Students from high schools and middle schools around the area competed with and displayed their bots of all shapes and sizes.

The event showcased robots from the FIRST teams of the Northeast Ohio FIRST Robotics Alliance.

The event is a great way to inspire students and create interest in science math, engineering and technology.

“FIRST stands for inspiration and recognition of science and technology. It is all about getting kids in grade school and high school excited about STEM engineering careers,” said Travis Hoffman, Team 48 Delphi L.I.T.E. mentor.

Another robotics event, The Mahoning Valley Robotics Challenge, is scheduled for September 20 at Austintown Fitch High School.
