Video+Story: Ysleta ISD students advance to Nationals, Worlds in Robotics Competition

Ysleta Independent School District Middle School and High School students competed in the Regional and State Virtual Robotic Competition throughout the month of April.

According to district officials, several students advanced to the Nationals and Worlds Competition.

“Students are natural scientists and engineers; they question, experiment, and play,” YISD officials shared. “VEX competitions foster these skills and capitalize on the motivational effects of competitions and robotics to help all students create and identity as a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) learner.”

VEX Robotics Competitions prepare students to become future innovators, with 95% of participants reporting an increased interest in STEM subject areas and pursuing STEM-related careers.

Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state, and national levels and culminate at the VEX Robotics World Championship each April.

District officials added that they are “proud of these programs, teachers, and students and wishes them luck as they advance to Nationals and Worlds!”
