First Robot Extreme Challenge at WKCTC Monday in Emerging Technology Center

West Kentucky Community and Technical College is gearing to host its first Robot Extreme Challenge (RCX) March 16 from 6-8 p.m. in the Emerging Technology Center.

Middle school and high school students will participate in the competition with teams consisting of up to ten students in each of the middle and high school levels.

The 2015 RCX competition is built around the theme of a Mars Adventure. Students get to imagine themselves doing the tasks of humans living on Mars and work on projects that revolve around the theme.

Each year, the Kentucky-based competition helps students build skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and involves participants preparing a LEGO EV3 Robot to complete as many as 13 missions.

The media is encouraged to attend.
