HOOKSETT, N.H. (AP) - An annual robotics competition that encourages young people to engage in science, technology, engineering and math gets underway Saturday in Hooksett.

The FIRST Robotics Competition requires teams of students to build and program robots to perform challenging tasks against a field of competitors. The goal is to inspire interest in science and technology through a program that focuses on leadership, teamwork and communication.

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu and Democratic U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan are speaking at Saturday’s competition kickoff. The 2018 championships will be held in April in Houston and Detroit.
