A team of Carnegie Mellon University students finished third in an international robotics competition.
Robotic arms corral a bouncing ball in a central arena as competitors give chase. Area high school teams square off in what is known as the “FIRST” Robotic Competition.
Forty-five robots, built by students, will take the floor at the Petersen Events Center March 15. Winners move on to the First Robotics national competition in Saint Louis. They have six weeks to finish their creations.
