International students visit Detroit, compete in world's biggest youth robotics event
Thousands of students from dozens of countries in Detroit this week
DETROIT – Thousands of students from dozens of countries are in Detroit this week competing in the biggest youth robotics event in the world.
Still, organizers of the FIRST Championship hope it gets a lot bigger. President Don Bossi says FIRST has a presence in only 12% of U.S. schools.
He and others with the Manchester, New Hampshire-based nonprofit are trying to attract more students, including from under-represented communities.
