PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The top robotics teams from across the state traveled to Benson High School Sunday for the Oregon FIRST Tech Challenge Tournament.

Robotics teams from 44 middle and high schools had the opportunity show what they got.

Teams design and program their own robots to compete 2-on-2 with another team for a spot in the super-regional championships in California.

College scholarships are also up for grabs.

In the end, teams say the most important part of the tournament is having fun.

“Even if we don't make it to California, we've still had a lot of fun today dealing with all these other robotics teams helping them out and them helping us," said one participant.

Fourteen teams will move on to the Western States Super-Regional Championships on March 24.
