The competition will begin at 9 a.m. The public is welcome.

For the 2013 competition, elementary and middle school teams must build autonomous robots from LEGO Mindstorm kits to navigate curving tracks simulating the launch facilities at NASA and a space course to Mars, making each trip as quickly and accurately as possible. Teams will compete in either the “Engineer-in-Training” division for elementary school teams, or the “Professional Engineers” division for middle school and more experienced teams.

The competition will include teams from Auburn Elementary, Bowling Green Junior High, Potter-Gray Elementary, Bluegrass Christian, Cub Run, Cumberland Trace Elementary, Drakes Creek Middle, Moss Middle, Plano Elementary, Rockfield Elementary, Simpson County 4-H, South Warren Middle and Warren Elementary.
