MISD Robotics Teams Continue to Shine
This past weekend, Mansfield ISD hosted the TCEA Area 11 Robotics Contest at Legacy High School. 91 teams from across the region, including 42 from Mansfield ISD, converged to compete in what proved to be a very fun and exciting event for all!
Mansfield ISD triumphed at the competition with five teams advancing to the TCEA State Contest in Duncanville on May 2nd. The Mighty Bots from Erma Nash Elementary took 2nd place in Intermediate Arena. In this contest, students had to build and program a robot to perform as many tasks as possible in just two minutes.
Mansfield ISD swept the Inventions category with all four awards going to our teams! In the Inventions contest, teams create and develop a unique robotic invention that will solve a problem. Operation Baby Savers and Light Savers, both from Mary Orr Intermediate, took 1st and 2nd respectively in the Intermediate Inventions contest. Shepard Bots: Food on the Move and Shepard Bots: I Cook 4 U, both from Donna Shepard Intermediate, placed 1st and 2nd respectively in the Advanced Inventions contest.
These outstanding achievements followed another MISD Robotics success. The Eagle Bots from Willie Brown Elementary competed in the FIRST LEGO League Second Chance Qualifier on January 17th and earned a spot in the FLL Regional Championships, which will be held at Parish Episcopal School (Dallas) on February 14th. They will join two other MISD teams at the Championships – Robo Tigers from Worley Middle and Leopard Robotics from Lillard Intermediate.
We are extremely proud of all our robotics teams for their hard work and appreciative of the coaches for their time, effort, and dedication to the students!
