JOHNSON CITY, Tennessee (WJHL) – East Tennessee State University will host a STEM-based competition in which students from five states will compete using robots and drones.
The Robot Drone League Invitational will take place on January 29 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Physical Activity Center building.

The teams will be responsible for monitoring seismic activity, studying a methane lake and collecting “HydroPods, NitroPods and CarbonPods”. They will have to build robots, solve engineering problems and deploy an autonomous underwater vehicle.
Dragonfly Challenge will be played on a 7.3 meter by 11 meter net covered terrain including mountains, tunnels, craters and “Lake Photon”.
