NEENAH (NBC 26) — On Saturday, more than 30 teams from schools across the region participated in a robotics competition.
The tournament took place at St. Mary Catholic High School in Neenah.
Students competed to win tournament awards and even earn spots in the state robotics competition.
For two high school seniors who participated in the competition they said having been part of robotics has definitely helped them choose a potential career path for after graduation.
“After graduation I plan on studying supply chain management and logistics and a lot it has stemmed through robotics because I’m just so curious on how we get these parts. Where do we order them from. Where do they get them from where they order it from and how do they get to our stem lab safe and sound,” said Agii Kerwin.
“Definitely going to go into engineering. Mechanical, maybe aerospace, maybe nuclear engineering. But definitely something that uses the same design process, and a lot of the skills and team work. The mindset of engineering that you really develop from this competition,” said Billy Walsh.
The competition was open to the public.
