(USNews)   Downtown St. Louis hosted 29,000 students participating in a robotics competition last week that celebrated science, technology, engineering and math. Students from 40 countries and all 50 states began the three-day competition last Thursday. The event included hundreds of matches and presentations for K-12 students.
The competition started in January when groups of students in grades seven through twelve were given a problem to solve as well as a box of parts, motors, sensors and gears. With the help of mentors from companies such as Honeywell and Boeing, they designed, built and programmed a robot to take on various tasks on a game table or court.
