Vikings Robotics team to compete at Key Arena

The Vikings Robotics team from Ballard High School will compete at the FIRST Robotics regional competition Friday and Saturday at the Key Arena.

This is the team’s second year competing and will go up against 63 other high school teams from Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Turkey.

The team, led by teacher Craig Nielsen, have spent countless hours building their robot. The goal during this competition is to navigate the robots through a series of soccer-themed activities and actually battle the robots against one another. Teams are judged on robot design, technology, sportsmanship and gracious professionalism. If you’re interested in watching the Vikings robotics team, the free event is Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a lunch break during the noon hour.
