SISD elementary and middle school robotics teams will be competing for the prestigious ROBOCOM 6.0 title in the district’s sixth annual robotics competition January 10 and 11 at Pebble Hills High School.
This year’s ROBOCOM theme is “City Shaper,” which challenges students to provide a solution on how to improve city infrastructure in their community. Students may choose how they define community, for example, their school, neighborhood or state.
ROBOCOM 6.0 participants will present their work to judges on the first day and compete in an interactive robotics competition on the second.
The second day is open to parents, families and community members to watch the robot challenges.
Twenty-four teams will advance to the regional competition, West Texas El Paso FLL Championship, organized by UTEP on January 25. These teams then have the opportunity to advance to a higher level of competition outside of the El Paso region.
