MISSION—For the first time, Mission Consolidated Independent School District had junior high school students compete in robotics Sumo-Bot challenge at the annual Hispanic Engineering, Science and Technology Week (HESTEC) held at the university of Texas Pan American.
These first-timers beat out many other junior high and high school teams to finish in the top five. Students from as far away as Laredo participated in the robotics day events.
The competition involved 60 teams made up of middle schools and high schools. Out of those 60 teams, 15 were middle school teams. Mission CISD was represented in this competition by two teams comprised of migrant students from Alton Memorial Jr. High School, K. White Jr. High School, and R. Cantu Jr. High School.
