The South Side High School Robotics Invitational Championship will be held on April 14 in cooperation with Youth Building Our Tomorrow. The competition will take place in the main gym with rounds beginning at 10 a.m. and the event ending at approximately 2 p.m. Admission is free to the public. Students from nine regional high schools (South Side, Wayne, Elmhurst, North Side, Harding, West Noble, Canterbury, Bishop Dwenger, and Carroll) will compete in the second annual robotics championship. Teams have spent five months building and modifying their robots while competing against one another at monthly meets. This will be the event that decides which school has the top bot and drivers. Youth Building Our Tomorrow was created by the SSHS Robotics Team, in collaboration with mentors from GE Motors. Youth B.O.T. offers a unique challenge for student-designed robots to compete as teams.
