Carnegie Robotics proudly hosted the 2014 First Robotics League (FLL) State Championship: These competitors are our next wave of scientists and engineers! This event brings together middle-school children and grows their ability to work as teams to design, build, code and test robots to compete autonomously (hands off!) on a variety of tasks in a two and a half minute period. An amazing array of robot designs and software approaches emerge. Teams are judged on a variety of aspects including programming skill, engineering details, game-table score, and presentation skills.
