“The Dallas ISD STEM Department has continuously hosted top-tier events this season and continues to lead as the largest VEX IQ program in Texas, helping spread STEM education into the DFW Metroplex,” said Ruben Lopez from the REC Foundation
Congratulations also go to Woodrow Wilson High School and School of Science and Engineering for advancing to the FIRST Tech Challenge UIL State Championship in Austin April 5-6.
Competitive robotics helps foster interest and awareness in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). It also supports the Dallas ISD goal of ensuring every student is involved in at least one extracurricular activity.
