MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - A middle school robotics team in Georgia will head to St. Louis this week to compete in a world championship robotics competition.

The Marietta Daily Journal (https://bit.ly/1P3K88a ) reports the Rockin’ Robots of Faith Lutheran School in Marietta will compete from Wednesday through Saturday at the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Tech Challenge. The four boys, ages 12 to 14, will compete in a series of contests with a robot they designed from scratch with the help of a 3-D printer. The tasks include collecting plastic balls scattered around an arena and trying to outsmart competitor’s robots.

The team is the only one from Georgia to make it to the world competition, where 128 teams will compete.
