Robots play the game of soccer

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL)-- Robots playing soccer--- that's what some area students had to come up with for a robotics competition.

Cedar Falls and Linn-Mar High Schools are taking part in the 2010 FIRST Robotics Competition. The robots have to maneuver soccer balls around a field, pass defenders and eventually score into their designated goals.

The students really enjoy the competition where they can show off their projects.  "When everybody and everything comes together and everybody is having a good time. All the teams are there. You get to see what everybody else built and how they solved the unique problem," said Linn-Mar Student Chris Fogerty.

The teams will leave March 5th for the regional championship in Kansas City.
