Robots developed by 400 high-school teams from around the world will be competing this week in the U.S. FIRST championships in O'Fallon, Ill., a St. Louis suburb. The robots will be challenged to shoot discs through goals as they maneuver around one another and then climb a pyramid. Segway inventor Dean Kamen launched the competition 20 years ago to inject a little excitement into science, technology, engineering and math education, and educators say the inspiration is working.
