Final day of robotics competition

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Sunday was the final day of the “first” robotics competition in Connecticut before students move on to compete in Boston and the event drew a big crowd to Hartford to see who will be going to the championship.

Students packed the gym of Hartford Public High School, battling to go on to the championship with robots they spent six weeks making.

Each team had to raise a minimum of $15,000 to make robots that can throw a ball into a hoop.

While the game was a lot of fun, it shows off these young engineers in the making.

“This experience here that I am getting right now is going to help me so much in the long run and it has helped me so much in my life and I love this program. It’s been completely mind blowing and incredible,” said a student.

The regional robotics competition is April 10th through the 12th in Boston.
