It may have looked a little messy but it was worth it. Gears, wires, motors, and laptops were spread across dozens of tables October 12th for the Robotics Competition at the University of Texas San Antonio. Seventy five area middle schools took part in the 2013 GEAR (Get Excited About Robotics) competition held inside the Convocation Center.
The competition was the culminating moment for a Leal Middle School Robotics Club team that had advanced to the UTSA event. Students Michael Quintanilla, Adam Mann, and Marisol Gutierrez took home 3rd place at the tournament.
