A robotics team made up of 10 high school students from around the Magic Valley has advanced to the FIRST Tech Challenge World Championships in St. Louis.

The TESLA Coils are the only Idaho team to qualify.

Teams are challenged to raise their robots off the ground using a platform pull-up bar, and end the match with a balanced pendulum to earn extra points.

The FIRST Tech Challenge World Championship will be held April 23rd. The winners get scholarships.
