Tech competitions held for high school students held at Pittsburg State


Hundreds of area high school students gathered at Pittsburg State on Friday for this year's Gorilla Games.

PSU's College of Technology hosted two major technology-related competitive events, the Gorilla Games and Skills USA Kansas.

Events included a quiz bowl, structural testing, dragsters and robotics, as well as demonstrations of electronic gaming and construction simulation.

"There's no rules against having fun and so we try to gear most of the challenges and the projects towards things that are interesting to kids, so you have kind of a dual purpose there but it works great and we have a lot of fun," says Mike Neden of Pittsburg State University.

Some of the structures built were able to hold more than 370 pounds.

All of Friday's events are ran by PSU students helping prepare them for teaching.
