Jenkins High prepares for first robotics competition


Jenkins High School is getting ready for their first robotics competition.

Students taking part in the six-week program work on their robot everyday after school and on some Saturdays.

This is Jenkin's first year in the competition but the students are up for the challenge.

"It seemed pretty tough at first like a challenge at first but the more we got into it. It was like ok maybe we have a good try at this," said Nikhil Patal.

"I'm really excited to see what the teams that have been competing for awhile have been competing for awhile," Arlesla Wildman said.

JCPenny and Georiga Power have been helping the students with the costs of the robotic program. 

The competition will take place in Atlanta from March 14 to March 16.
