The FIRST Lake Superior & Northern Lights Regional Robotics Competition will be held at the DECC on March 6 - 8.

More than 100 teams from across the US will head to Duluth to compete, including local teams like the Duluth Denfeld Hunters, Duluth TopperBots, Duluth Lion Pride and Duluth East Daredevils, who were kind enough to come on the show Tuesday.

Karl Frisk and Anna Karas, team co-captains of the Duluth East Daredevils stopped by to talk with us.  Karl tells us that while they have the robot mostly designed when they unveil it in January, he also says "the robot is constantly changing as we're adding new stuff on and working out what works and what doesn't work."

On Thursday, March 6th, are the practice matches which are not open to the public. March 7 & 8 are the actual competition, which is open to the public and free!

The Lake Superior & Northern Lights Regional Robotics Competition will be held at DECC. For more information on the event you can head to decc.org, foir more info about the Duluth East Daredevils you can head to daredevils2512.org or their Facebook page.
