CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Abraham Wolfe is the Engineering teacher and head robotics coach at Clarksville's Kenwood High School. As a result, his guidance and expertise, has lead his students to be selected to compete in a number of prestigious robotics competitions.

On Wednesday, they prepared for not one, but two competitions - one in Palo Alto, California, and the other in London, England.

The students, who are taking part in this come from all over the world, and will compete playing the same game, "Tower Takeover."

The difficult part of this, is creating a robot from scratch and making sure it's as accurate as possible.

The students have to keep notebooks on their robots, and try as often as possible, to make sure their robots can get the job done. Each student has his or her own job, and they come together, to make sure they're all on the same page.They've placed in past competitions, and hope to bring home the gold, this year.
