Local Students Compete In Robotics Tournament


Colin McNamara is focused, his concentration intense, as he tries to solve a computer program that will allow a  metal robot to perform the task at hand - being able to move over several uneven surfaces.

As McNamara works at problem solving, the rest of his Madrid-Waddington robotics team makes mechanical adjustments to its metal creation.
The young engineers of the future are among 350 high school students from local and private schools taking part in the robotics tournament at Clarkson University's Walker Center.

The challenge of designing, building and programming a mechanical robot incorporates a variety of academic skills.
On Saturday, middle school students will compete using robots created from plastic Lego toys.
