AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The University Interscholastic League has announced robotics competitions starting next year.

Texas Education Commissioner Michael Williams says robotics programs are now commonplace in many school districts and the numbers continue to grow.

League officials in Austin, in a statement Thursday, said all UIL high schools will have access to the robotics pilot project. The program will have two divisions.

The UIL Robotics Championships: FIRST Division will take place at the Austin Convention Center in late July. The UIL Robotics Championships: BEST Division will occur next fall.
