TAMPA, Fla. - High school senior Joanna Sanders said she's wanted to get into robotics since she was a young child.
“I’ve always seen innovation, stuff like shuttle launches, robots in healthcare and other disciplines, and I’ve always seen that I thought, hey I could build that," Sanders said.
Sanders is a Lead Engineer on the 5276 Edgar Allan Ohms robotics team based out of the Land O'Lakes Public Library. The Ohms are a First Robotics Competition Team.
This science and tech showcase features robotics competitions for grades K-12. More than 50 teams are competing in this year’s competition, which is designed to “increase public awareness of and engagement in the power of hands-on, mentor-driven youth engineering and robotics programs.”
Roboticon is free to attend but they ask that you request free tickets online. It runs from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. on Sunday.
