FIRST Robotics 2014 World Championship
Battlebots and Combots may no longer be around, but robotics competition is still thriving in Dean Kamen's annual FIRST Robotics event for high school students. This past April, over 12,000 students brought their robots to St. Louis for this year's championship to compete in various challenges, leading up to the main event: a cooperative robot game called Aerial Assist. Teams from all over the country have just six weeks to design and build their robots from a set of common parts. You can watch more videos from the FIRST championship event here.
