BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Middle and high school kids from across the country showed off their high-tech underwater robots Saturday. 

Teams were battling it out on LSU's campus, taking the robots through an underwater course.

All of the machines had to be put together with low-cost materials like PVC pipe.

Teams qualified for Saturday's national championship through several smaller competitions. 

The winners were crowned Saturday night at the LSU Carl Maddox Fieldhouse.
