Members of the Baltimore Section of the IEEE organized an annual event called the IEEE Robot Challenge. The event encourages high school students to pursue careers in engineering by allowing them to participate in a competition where they build a robot, present a written report, test their robots in a track race, and finally give an oral report to the judges about their robots. This video follows students through their journey in the competition and includes interviews with the judges about why they strongly support the IEEE Robot Challenge.
