Robotics on a roll in Minnesota schools

"Minnesota is becoming a Mecca for robotics," said Joe Passofaro, one of the mentors/coaches for the Prior Lake High School robotics team, which won the state championship last year. "We're getting a group here that is coming onto the world scene."
Minnesota last year became the first state in the country to sanction a state tournament and championship for robotics teams. Teams compete by building robots to perform specific tasks -- shooting basketballs last year, throwing Frisbees this year -- and then seeing whose works the best.
