Students face off in robotics competition

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Students took part in a "Battle of the Bots" competition in Biloxi.

Elementary and middle school students from 20 schools all over the coast convened on Jeff Davis Elementary School Saturday morning.

The vex robotics competition has been testing robot making skills for more than 10 years.

Students spend hours after school to create the perfect robot, some starting as far back as September.

The goal of the competition was to get your robot to shoot the balls into the net or over the pipes.
