15 schools gather in Salem for a robotics tournament
SALEM, Va. – 15 schools from across Southwest, Virginia gathered at Salem High School for a robotics tournament.
The Blue Ridge Brawl was hosted by Salem's robotics team. The competition gave students a chance to compete against other robots built by students at the different schools.
The students spent a total of six weeks preparing and building the technology for the competition.
"It builds a lot of skills that I really would not get otherwise that I'm going to be steps ahead of a lot of people in the workplace," said Salem senior Timothy Tuttle.
The Salem robotics team says the event is an effort to grow stem and robotics in the area.
