Junior Brian Flannery of Atkinson observes as his robot named "Devel-Loper" sweeps the court clean of Leggo bricks. Each pair of robots had  two minutes to push as many Leggo bricks into either starting area. At the end of the two minutes, each robot was awarded a point for every Leggo brick that was pushed into the starting area. According to Dr. Sherri  Harms, associate professor  in the department of computer science and information systems, the students in the class have been working on the robots since the beginning of the semester. "They have put a lot of hours into building the robots, developing hardware and software and learning what works well together. It's a challenge," Harms said.
