A group of 17 students from Hutchinson Middle School visited X-Fab Tuesday afternoon.
The students are competing in the upcoming B.E.S.T. (Boosting Engineering Science and Technology) robotics competition.
X-Fab uses robotics to assemble silicon wafers for integrated circuits.
The visit helped the students see how the technology, science and engineering that they study to create their robots are used in the real world.
Several schools from around the region face off in the B.E.S.T. competition October 19th at Estacado High School.
