Thursday was a big night for the Duluth East High School Daredevils robotics team.  They unveiled their new 2014 robot. 

Students have had just six weeks to conceptualize, design, and build a robot for the 2014 regional and national FirstRobotics competitions.  

Team co-captain Anna Karas says this year's contest is a bit different than in the past.  

"This year's game is called, 'Aerial Assist' and instead of previous years when one robot can get all of the points, you actually have to incorporate more teamwork so one robot passes to another robot, who passes to another robot, who scores".

The Daredevils are making last minute adjustments, getting ready for what will be the largest double regional competition in history.  

And it will all take place right here in Duluth on March 7th and 8th at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center.

Over 100 robotics teams from all over the country will be here.
