WARWICK - There was more cooperation than battle, but 32 teams of Rhode Island high school students had it out in high-tech style Saturday morning under the auspices of New England Institute of Technology.
Before a cheering audience in the competition pits of NEIT's automotive campus, students maneuvered their creations through a combination of bowling and pickup in the sixth annual Rhode Island FIRST Tech Challenge Championship.
FIRST, founded by inventor Dean Kamen, sponsors the competition to promote careers in science, technology, engineering and math. It creates a different game each year for the event.
