Dallas Morning News: Sunset robotics students with disabilities seek a league of their own


The Dallas Morning News has a great story on a first-of-its-kind robotics team at Sunset High School.

From the Dallas Morning News:

Sunset’s Robo*Flash team has about eight students with various physical and mental disabilities. Many fall along the autism spectrum. Some have Down syndrome, learning disorders or vision problems. One member can’t speak.

“But you put him in front of a robot and he’ll shoo you away, take it apart and put it back together,” said Pauline Tatum, a life skills teacher who has taught at Sunset for 16 years.
