Photo Gallery: Robotics team heads to state


Watch out NASA, more future science and engineer field leaders are heading your way!

Woodrow Wilson High School’s RoboCats competed in the Dallas BEST Regional Robotics Competition, Oct. 18 at Eastfield College. They were one of two teams from North Texas to advance to state, after this year’s competition.

“There are two ranking systems and the overall ranking includes the team’s marketing, record keeping lab books showing their design process and other things,” said Marc Hairston, Woodrow’s University of Texas at Dallas sponsor.

Brandon Carver, Woodrow Wilson STEM Academy head, also won the outstanding teacher award at the competition, based on a letter of recommendation submitted by the WWHS club’s president, Joey Hines, who is a senior.

“The students have spent the past six weeks designing, building, and testing a robot that could perform several different complex tasks, and did a tremendous job representing Woodrow at the competition. This is a crew that works incredibly hard, but never seeks the spotlight. They have earned some recognition,” said Carver.

The crew will continue to practice in preparation for state competition.

The state contest is open to the public and will be held Saturday, Nov. 15 at the Curtis Cullwell Center, in Garland, Texas.
