In what sounded like a pep rally at A&M Consolidated High School Saturday, local student teams took to the gym floor to compete with their homemade robots.
The school was host to the Brazos Best Robotics competition.
Teams were given three minutes to use their machine to take model plane parts off of shelves, move them to another area, then assemble the plane.
Students were to then use the robot to connect the assembled plane to a magnet suspended in the air.
Teams spent weeks designing and building the robots, and Saturday was the culmination of a lot of work.
"I get to build a robot with a team of friends and then come have fun on a Saturday. Its like the thrill of a football game with a science-engineering side," said A&M Consolidated senior Will Rooney
All of the teams were given the same materials with which to build their robots.
