EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (KSDK) - Science and technology took center stage in Edwardsville Sunday as local middle and high school students competed in "Bot Ball."

Teams designed and built robots, then compete in a tournament designed to test the skills of those robots.

Organizers say it's a great way to make education fun. They expect we'll see the benefits of this competition for years to come as students go on to develop new technology.
