Robotics competition ignites interest in STEM fields
By Sharon Luther-Minor on March 20, 2015
“Robotics competition is fun because you get a lot of hands-on learning that you just don’t get in the classroom,” said Maddie, a member of the Pink Lady Hornets, an all-girl team from Flour Bluff High School in Corpus Christi.
Last Friday, Maddie and more than 3,500 other students from across the United States battled it out in a robotics competition that showcased a bright future for ingenuity, creativity and leadership in the engineering and technology fields
San Antonio hosted the 5th Annual Alamo FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Regional Robotics Competition at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. The competition encourages students to learn about and pursue careers in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.
We are proud to have been a sponsor of the largest FIRST regional event in the United States. Other co-sponsors included Rackspace and Tesoro. As an event sponsor, we provided judges for the robotics competitions and fun at the social media photo booth.
Local representation included teams from Southwest, Antonian, Central Catholic, South San and Sam Houston High Schools.
