The robotics competition, organized by the Science Education Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-SEI) together with the Nido Fortified Science Discovery Center (NFSDC), is an annual varsity type robotics competition that seeks to promote robotics to the youth and eventually entice them to pursue studies and careers in science and engineering. The game is a mixture of Filipino-loved sports, basketball and football, using robots where alliances ? composed of three teams ? try to score buko, melon, and pakwan balls to their opponent?s goal.

Brawner said the competition is a good headstart for schools to venture into robotics in the hope that the students will have interest in pursuing careers in science when they go to college. ?So I encourage you to keep your heads up, because your journey is just starting. Be proud and optimistic for you are just scratching the surface of your potential as future professionals in the field of robotics,? Brawner said. ]]>
