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.
