MANOA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Robots invade the Stan Sheriff Center. It's the 3rd Annual First in Hawaii Regional Robotics competition.

Thousands of students, teachers and parents attended Friday's opening ceremony. 24 teams from Hawaii and four visiting from the Mainland are battling it out for the title.

The goal is to solve an engineering design problem in an intense and competitive way.

"It's really cool to see what they came up with, there's a hundred different ways to approach this game and each robot is different and unique in its own way," Island School junior Stephanie Steuri said.

The contests wrap up Saturday afternoon with the awards ceremony.
