DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - Students at Albany High School are getting an opportunity to show off their engineering skills.
For the first time, students are getting the chance to compete in the 'First Robotics Competition.'
Friday was the first day of the competition. The robots are judged by how well they complete skills tests.
Students from 30 schools region wide tested their robots at the Civic Center.
The leader of the Albany High School team says he's grateful for the opportunity.
"It's been great. It's been exciting. It was stressful at first but once you get in the first match you get going, move some gears. You get to make friends and all that kind of stuff," said Lee Furman, 10th grader.
The competition will be all day tomorrow as well.
It is free to the public to watch.
The final rounds will start around 3.
The top 4 schools will go to the state competition.
