FLINT (WJRT) -

(03/01/13) - A high-tech weekend competition is off to a flying start.

The first order of business for First Robotics teams at Kettering University was to mark out their territory.

Then 40 high school teams will maneuver their robots around the field and throw Frisbees into slots for points.

We asked one coach what he wants competitors to learn this weekend.

"That we're trying to change the culture. We're trying to change the way people think about engineers and kids in school. Trying to change the way the world looks at kids that like a good challenge," said Andrew Spiece, of the Brandon/Holly Trucktown Thunder.

First Robotics competition runs from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Saturday at the Kettering Rec Center. It's free and open to the public.
