Tulalip robot wars

It's robot vs. robot at Tulalip gatheringAmateur engineers are to pit their creations against one another today in the first ever Tulalip Robotics Microexposition.

Under the watch of two professional robot developers who will visit the Tulalip Indian Reservation for the event, young inventors--and even those who have never before touched a robot--are expected to compete in a series of "mini-sumo" competitions.

"This is a real healthy activity for young people to get involved with," said Daniel Jones, Tulalip campus manager for Northwest Indian College, which is hosting the event. "It leads to well-paying jobs and satisfying careers. We're trying to pique their interest."
