Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) – While high schools are cheering on teams in the state basketball tournament, a more futurisitic team is preparing for its sports world championship.

The West Fargo Robotics Team showed off its victorious robot today at John Deere in Fargo. Team members have been working with mentors from the company, as well as Microsoft, to develop the high-tech machine. It’s designed to stack and move recycling bins.

The students recently won their regional championship in Duluth.
