SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Hundreds of students from across New York competed in the Vex Robotics Championship on Sunday for a chance to play at the world finals.
The SRC Arena hosted the event with teenagers from middle and high schools across the state.
"It's important that the kids learn the skills that they'll need, so that they can succeed in the jobs that are available these days," Bryan English, the event's coordinator said.
The Syracuse event began a few years ago with only around 25 teams participating. More than 75 took part in this year's event.
The Vex Robotics World Championship takes place at the end of April in Louisville.
