Hundreds of middle and high school students interested in robotics will have the opportunity Saturday to compete on a day-long project sponsored by Cisco and NC FIRST Robotics. The RTP company is the host of the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Kick-Off robotics competition in partnership with North Carolina A&T State.

Students will get their challenge upon arrival and be responsible for designing, building, and programming robots to complete in specific tasks.

The game begins at 11:45 a.m.
