DULUTH- Students around the world found out the game parameters for this year's FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition.
Students from the Lake Superior region met at UMD to find out from NASA, what the game is for this year.
Denfeld senior, Lauren Johnson said, "we found out that the game is called aerial assist. And it's going to be kind of like hockey."
The teams also received parts for their robots, but they, must build the rest of the robots themselves.
Johnson said, "every FIRST team around the world just got this challenge, and so everyone has the exact same amount of time to complete it in the six week time. And then we all compete after that."
The teams now have to assemble their robots and the competition will take place at the DECC in early March.
