State Competition for Robotics


Faculty, staff and students from Pennsylvania College of Technology’s School of Industrial and Engineering Technologies – with additional support from departments across campus – hosted more than 350 high school students during the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Tech Challenge State Robotics Championship in the Field House on Saturday. Penn College’s academic programs and facilities dovetailed perfectly with the incredible display of teamwork, ingenuity and knowledge throughout the day, from which qualifying teams will advance to April’s national competition in St. Louis.
