SISD Students to Showcase STEM Skills at ROBOCOM 5.0 Saturday

The Socorro Independent School District will have its annual robotics competition, ROBOCOM 5.0, on January 12 at Pebble Hills High School.

Based on the rules of the First Lego League (FLL), it allows elementary and high school students to immerse themselves in real-world science and technological challenges.

District officials share that this year’s theme is “Into Orbit.” Student groups will create a project that will show how humans can survive in space for the long-term.

Fifty-two teams from all SISD elementary, PK-8 and middle schools will participate, and all high schools have students supporting the event. Each round will feature different teams competing.

All teams will be recognized at the roll call and winners will be announced at the awards ceremony.

Twenty-five teams will advance to the regional competition organized by UTEP on January 26. These teams then have the opportunity to advance to a higher level of competition outside of the El Paso region.

The ROBOCOM 5.0 schedule is:

Round 1 Competition – 9:00 a.m.
Round 2 Competition – 11:00 a.m.
Round 3 Competition – 1:00 p.m.
Round 4 Competition – 3:00 p.m.
ROBO Roll Call – 6:10 p.m.
Awards Ceremony – 6:30 p.m.
