Dozens of high school students from across the state came to compete in a robotics competition at the Civic Center.
About 20 teams competed in the "Bash of the Summer X-BOT'S regional scrimmage competition."
This is the first year the event has been hosted in Albany.
We talked to one team who was competing for the first time.
"There is a lot of things that we have to learn about the program and all of the teams are so nice as far as teaching you some of the ropes about the program, it's helping us out quite a bit," John Williams said.
Students from Albany,Monroe,Dougherty ,and Calhoun County High Schools and Albany Tech's Summer robotics program represented Southwest Georgia in the competition.
