Omaha North High School hosted its largest-ever robotics competition on Saturday.
A record-setting 120 teams of 500 students from across Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri took part. The competition featured remote-control robotic vehicles designed, constructed and programmed by students from commercially available parts.
“It's a technology world so these kids are learning with a very basic level with these robots,” said Jim Musil of OPS Industrial Technology. “We believe they're going to be able to take that into a career.”
The top eight teams in the high-school division and the top five teams from the middle-school division qualified for the state tournament.
