They were put in teams with their own robot in a series of practice sessions and team-building exercises. Two participants KRQE News 13 spoke to said they had a lot of fun playing with the robots.

“It’s kind of scary but it’s also really fun and exciting. It gives you anxiety when she’s counting down ‘three, two, one, time,'” said participant Olivia Osvorn. The event went from 1p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
