SHS students' robots up for the challenge

ZILLAH - The eighth annual Zillah Robot Challenge for high schools will be held this Saturday, March 10, in the Zillah High School Gymnasium.

Area high school teams began registering for the free event in early January. The competition is open to all schools in Washington state (public, private, alternative and home schools).

The competition began the first week of February when 46 teams from 15 different schools began learning how to assemble and program their Boe-Bot robot kits. The Boe-Bot kits are provided at no cost by the Zillah High School Science Boosters and are purchased through donations from area businesses and individuals. The kits include all necessary hardware, software and curriculum materials.

Teams will arrive at ZHS on Saturday, March 10, to compete in three different events.

The Zillah Science Boosters, through the generous support of area businesses are able to provide all teams with the necessary hardware, software and curriculum at no cost to the participants.
