ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Engineering instructors at Albany Technical College are looking for folks to help with a Robotics Competition.

They're looking for event sponsors and mentors to help the high school competitors.

High school students who are dual-enrolled at Albany Tech take college engineering courses and compete by designing their own robots.

"We present a real life game where they can put their hands on it and they're not sitting in front of the TV, they're actually putting together skills that are developed as far as construction, fabrication from metal, fabrication from doing pneumatics and electrical and mechanical engineering," said Engineering instructor Dennis Courtney.   

The competition will be held at the Albany Civic Center on March 18th and 19th. Admission is free.

If you'd like to be an event sponsor call Dennis Courtney  at 229-886-3920.
