Robot Wars!
Robot Wars!

Listen
AIR DATE: April 13, 2011

Two robots square off against each other.  They're 120-pounds each of pure steel, shifting gears as they march slowly across the 27 x 54-foot field.  Their creators huddle on the sidelines - high schoolers who have dedicated months to making the perfect bot.  The bell rings, and the robots charge - it's fight time! It's Transformers vs. Terminators, when robots square off against each other for the 7th Annual Las Vegas Regional FIRST Robotics Competition.  We talk to the local frontrunners about how you design the ultimate bot, and how their showdowns went in the ring.
