ABQ students bring robots to life

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Wires and metal came to life in Albuquerque Thursday.

Eighth grade students from Truman Middle School teamed up with UNM engineering students to learn how to create robots.

Students spent three months creating four robots, building them and programming them.

It’s part of UNM’s efforts to reach out to younger students to get them interested in science and engineering.
