Students have built and programmed their own robots to use in the competition.

The contestants are trying to qualify for the World's tournament in Orlando.

For students they say it's not all just work it's also fun.

"I started actually at this competition last year and went to worlds in April and competed there for and started again this year because I really enjoy it," said Wesley Newton.

Teachers say it also allows students to take what they learn in class and put it to use.

"It's an outstanding opportunity for them to tie in what they learn in math and science classes and tie it in to the real world applications where they do math, science, engineering and technology together and actually put what they learn in the classes to work," said John Newton.

Teachers say their main goal is getting the kids prepared for a future that is revolving around technology.
