12 YISD schools compete in world robotics championships

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
