Friendswood students compete in state robotics contest
Two Friendswood Junior High students competed recently in the Inventions category at the Texas Computer Education Association's state competition in Irving, placing fourth.
Hannah Cooley and Sarah Palmer built a floor-cleaning robot named RoboShine, which competed against robots from the 50 best teams in the state.
Team members Billy Carroll, Bryce Chahl, Caleb Clasen, Sebastian Gonzalez, Evan Kelly and Alex Wachowicz competed in the Arena category and finished among the top 20 teams.
The TCEA supports robotics as an invaluable resource for teaching science, technology, engineering and math skills while developing critical thinking, collaboration and problem solving abilities.
For the competition, students can build robots to compete in either a prescribed problem contest or an open-ended invention contest.
