RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Teams of students are set to compete with robots constructed from Legos in a contest meant to create innovative solutions for dealing with garbage.

The competition is scheduled for Saturday at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.

Ten teams of students with members up to 14 years old are participating in the competition, which has been themed “Trash Tek.” The goal is to develop solutions for dealing with trash such as recycling or reducing waste.

The event’s winning team will move up to a state competition. The school says the highlight will be robot games where autonomous robots built from Legos will complete missions on a playing field.
