Teams of students compete for the Lego League Robotics Championship

(WDAZ TV) - It was a time to take metal, wheels, and gears and make them come to life!

Today, UND hosted 30 teams of fourth through eight graders for the Lego League Robotics Championship.

The teams were from across North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota. Students did a research project, built a robot, and then tested it over a series of obstacles.

"I programmed the robot to do missions, I did the research project and we had fun.”

Today, the Minot and Hatton-Northwood teams also showed their robots that won previous competitions.
