The Metala all girls robotics team came together after their first Lego building competition was cancelled.
Now the girls are working on a robot for the West Texas BEST competition.
The robot must be able to pick up items and complete specific tasks in an allotted time frame.
The girls also had to submit a Project Engineering Notebook filled with data and research from their 6 week building project.
Each member of the team must drive the robot as some point during the competition.
Team members include Madison Franks, Alyson Oliver, Madyson Cook, Audrey Crawford, and Blakely Laird.
The BEST competition is Saturday October 19th from 8 am to 5 pm at Estacado High School at 1504 E Itasca St, Lubbock, TX
