Tauranga teens take on the world with their robot creations



In an upstairs room at the House of Science in Tauranga, three high-school students are frantically building a robot for the robotics world championship.

The team is trying to create a bigger, better, faster model than the one which recently won them the national high school title.

The boys have less than a month to build and program a robot for the VEX Robotics World Championship in the United States.

The competition pits 1400 of the best high school robotics teams from around the world against each other in robot sport.

This year, it’s robot volleyball.
