WARWICK, RI- Robots took over the New England Institute of Technology at the 8th annual FIRST® Robotic Competition.

32 middle and high school teams put their custom–designed robots to the test.

Lifting blocks, raising flags and balancing pendulums were the missions that had to be completed in this 2–minute race.

Jeffrey Macdonough said, "I got here at 7:30 this morning and I was really tired and I don't feel tired at all anymore so it's really crazy right now."

"I definitely get the biggest adrenaline rush right now. You just want to win and you want to get as many points as possible," said Christopher Bradley.

The top three teams will go to Pennsylvania for the regional championship in April.
