Robots and their student-creators swarmed the Myrtle Beach Convention Center during the Palmetto Regional FIRST Robotics Competition, March 1-2.  In all, 65 teams of high school students from 12 states, the District of Columbia and Brazil took part in the two-day tournament.  This year's robot challenge was called "Ultimate Ascent."  Students received a kit of parts, without instructions, on January 6, then had six weeks to build a robot that could throw Frisbees into goals and climb a pipe-frame pyramid.  The competition was fast-paced, lively and exciting for the crowd of 3,000-plus spectators.  Nine Horry County schools took part in the robotics competition, with Conway's Academy of Technology and Academics one of three teams advancing to the world finals in St. Louis.
