Local high school students got a chance to show off their skills at a South by Southwest Interactive panel Tuesday.
A "For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology" (FIRST) robotics competition team called the Lady Cans took their robot "Tubey or not Tubey" for a spin.
Anderson High School student Allison Rich was part of Tuesday's panel along with mentors from the local community.
"It's mixing a normal competition like a football or basketball game, but as opposed to humans in the game it's robots. It's a sport for the mind. It’s a real world application of what we're learning in school," Rich said.
Connect a Million Minds, or CAMM, is Time Warner Cable's initiative to encourage interest in the engineering, science, math and technology fields.
