GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — High school students on FIRST Robotics teams have finally completed their designs. They have been working on their robots for the past six weeks.

A showcase was held Saturday, at McCutcheon high school. Teams from area schools powered up their robots for the community to see.

Mariah Boger handles Public Relations for Purdue FIRST programs.

She said the student's work ethic is inspiring.

"Absolutely love seeing high school kids and there's even FIRST programs that go all the way down to third grade so seeing younger kids and high school kids getting involved in STEM is super amazing for me to see, especially women in STEM is huge because typically it's a male dominated field," said Boger.

The robots will be stored away in bags until competitions start in the spring.
