Robots come to life as Brunswick Community College hosts inaugural Robocon
BOLIVIA, N.C. — The sound of cheering, laughter and whirring electrical motors filled the hallways of Brunswick Community College’s Building B on Saturday.
The inaugural RoboCon 2016, which brought together educational, corporate and non-profit groups, focused on the role robotics could have in leading students into successful careers in technology and the sciences.
“From Kindergartners to high school seniors, everyone can get involved,” Juan Garcia said.
Garcia, a freshman at Brunswick Community Academy, is on the marketing team for his school’s robotics team.
