It’s not Robocop,

but it’s a start

If you still haven’t seen the robots designed by groups of high school students to compete in a crazy contest, you have another chance on Saturday.

The Duluth East Daredevils will be the hosts as eight teams from the Upper Midwest compete in last year’s game, dubbed “Aerial Assist.” The free event begins at 9:15 a.m. at East High School with opening ceremonies and ends about 4 p.m. with an awards ceremony.
