(ABC 6 News) - The Southland Rebels Robotics team from Adams is heading to the Vex World Championships.

Southland Robotics had three teams that qualified, including one high school team, two middle school teams, one of which is an all-girls team.

Due to the pandemic, the team was not able to travel this year.

The team had to come up with alternatives and the Rec Foundation and Vex Robotics worked together to put together a live remote tournament.

Teams will compete in head-to-head matches with other teams in a newly-developed environment similar to an in-person event.

The Vex Robotics Live Remote World Championship is set for May16-21.

ABC 6 News Photojournalist Brian Wise shows us how they did it.
