Teams of STEM students from 12 Ysleta ISD schools have qualified for the 2022 VEX Robotics World Championships, the largest robotics competition in the world that takes place May 5-12, both remotely and in-person.
The annual VEX Robotics World Championship is organized by the Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation, which aims to increase student interest and involvement in STEM by engaging students in hands-on, affordable, and sustainable robotics engineering programs.
Student-led teams from elementary, middle, and high schools – as well as the university level – will showcase their game strategy, design, and teamwork skills in order to be crowned champions at this world-class global event, which is being hosted in Dallas and presented by the Northrop Grumman Foundation.
This year’s Ysleta ISD participants include students from Ascarate, Dolphin Terrace, North Loop, and Pebble Hills elementary schools; Bel Air, Del Valle, and Riverside middle schools; Eastwood, Hanks, and Ysleta high schools; Valle Verde Early College High School; and the Young Women’s Leadership Academy.
Every year, the championships offer the opportunity for the robotics community to unite in celebration of STEM excellence and compete in matches. By familiarizing students with programming, sensors, and automation, the competition helps hone critical computational thinking skills that are needed to succeed in the workforce and everyday life.
Beyond science and engineering principles, VEX Robotics solutions encourage creativity, teamwork, leadership, passion, and problem-solving among groups. High school teams are scheduled to compete from May 5-7, followed by the middle school teams from May 8-10, and elementary school teams from May 10-12. For more information, Click Here
