Robot tournament teaches competition and cooperation



The nonprofit FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded 40 years ago in New Hampshire to encourage young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math. For Friday’s competition, students had to design, build and program a robot to pick up moon rocks faster than competing robots and then hook back up to the lunar rover.

“I love every part of it,” said Wyatt Sloan, 16, a sophomore on Belgrade High School’s EngiNerds team. “It’s great to be part of a community.”
