STEM Early College HS robotics students take on the world

STEM Early College HS students participated in the World VEX Robotics Competition in Louisville, Kentucky April 19-22.

The Rattlers ranked 87th out of 564 teams who competed from around the world.

“This was our first year participating so we got a good feel for it,” Nick Cortez said. “We learned a lot and now we know what to expect for next year.”

The students got to speak to other students from China, Malaysia, Canada, Mexico and other countries.

“We gave other teams tips and they gave us tips back,” Esmeralda Castillo said. “It was a really great opportunity to learn from teams from around the country.”

The teens spent five weeks working on their robot and came back with great ideas and strategies to implement in the future.

They also came back with a deeper love for robotics.

“Some of us weren’t sure if we wanted to do robotics next year, but after going to the World Competition, we are definitely going to do it again,” Ingrid Rios said.

The team bonded really well and formed stronger relationships.

“It was really stressful, but towards the end of it all we remembered just to have fun,” Ingrid Rios added.
