Eighty-six Tyler ISD students from eight campuses will put their engineering skills to the test when they compete against each other in the 2018 Tyler ISD Robotics Showcase and Competition. The event will be held Jan. 25 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Dixie Elementary School, 213 Patton Lane.
“We are excited to continue the Tyler ISD K-8 Robotics Showcase and Competition again this year,” Hunter McConnell, Tyler ISD instructional technology specialist and robotics coordinator, said. “This year we expanded the competition to included middle school students. So far, we have six elementary schools and two middle schools participating with eight first through third grade groups and 13 fourth through eighth grade groups.”
Additionally, engineering students from the Tyler ISD Career and Technology Center, along with district faculty and staff, will serve as guest judges for the competition.
McConnell added that this year there will be a live video feed so that parents and guests can stay in the cafeteria while the students are competing in different locations. “This way everyone can see what is happening, right as it happens,” McConnell said.
