OCONTO FALLS – Students put their technology to the test Saturday, in a regional competition.

It was robot against robot in Oconto Falls.

Middle and high school students from Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois took part.

The Oconto Falls 4-H club “Team Green Robotics Project” hosted the event.

Project leaders say the competition helps get students interested in all things engineering.

“Programming skills, there’s some that like the electrical part of things, the computer part. Basically, there’s something for everyone,” said project leader Kent Lyng.

Eight teams went on to qualify for the state championships.

That tournament is set to take place next month in Appleton.
