Robotics competition kicks off

Attendees test out the game field layout with a robot during the Denton County Boosting Engineering, Science, and Technology (DC BEST) Robotics Competition Kickoff at UNT Discovery Park on Saturday. The UNT Department of Engineering Technology hosted the kickoff. About 20 middle and high school students attended the event, where teams learned about this year’s game and new rules, received training in robotics and also got to see the new game field. UNT’s outreach helps promote STEM careers to the younger generation.
