A preview of today's schools feature story, from EHOVE:

EHOVE's 7-year-old robotics team will compete at a district-level competition in Pittsburgh this weekend. This year's game resembles ultimate Frisbee, where robots score points by shooting flying discs into elevated targets.

The team, which includes students from a three-county area, unveiled its latest creation Tuesday.

The robot cost about $2,700 to build and consists of more than 350 individual parts. It can launch flying discs at targets dozens of feet away.

The team is sponsored by local businesses, including NASA Plum Brook Station.
