All nine of Horry County's high schools participated in the 2019 Palmetto Regional FIRST Robotics Tournament March 1-2 at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. The NASA-themed event welcomed 64 teams from 10 states. Students had six weeks to build a working robot from scratch to accomplish the goals of this year's game, Destination: Deep Space, presented by Boeing. As you can see, the event drew more than 2,000 spectators and involved intense -- but friendly -- competition among the students. They worked together in three-team alliances to see which robots could score the most points. Looking for a volunteer opportunity? Consider the Palmetto Regional next year.
