The first Southwest PA Combat Bots Middle School League competitions were held at Indiana Junior High School on Friday.

Twenty-four IJHS students make up four teams of six students each.
Teachers have developed curricula, technical specifications and recommendations so that the high school technology department / STEM can join and be competitive.
Students not only created a combat bot, but also had to share a portfolio showing all aspects of their assembly.
Three schools are currently participating in the Southwest PA Combat Bots High School League: Freeport, Homer-Center and Indiana.
Viper and Magnum reached the final round. In the end, Team Magnum was recognized as a great champion.
The league hopes to add more teams in the future.
