Forty-three teams from high schools across the state gathered inside Stegeman Coliseum last weekend to take part in the Peachtree State Championship Qualifying FIRST Robotics Competition.
Teams were divided into two sides, red and blue. Each match consisted of three red and three blue teams—each with its own robot—competing to see which team could complete a series a tasks first.
A red team consisting of OTTO from Forsyth Central High School, RoboMustangs from Meadowcreek High School and RoboBibb from Bibb County high schools won the state championship.
Those teams, along with 12 others from Georgia, will participate in the national championship in Houston, which kicks off Apr. 19.
