Previously, CCISD hosted two test events for UIL before they were chosen as the state championship location, according to the release.
“It is amazing to be trusted by the UIL to host their very first ever championship in the two-year pilot phase of the program,” said James Jobe, CCISD robotics and engineering program manager, in the release. “It has been a great privilege to work with Robotics Education and Competition Foundation with the support of the Texas Workforce Commission.”
A total of 84 high school teams competed at the event across various divisions from 1A to 6A. Clear Brook High School's 3118B Astrobots and Clear Springs High School's 2344A Bolt Bots reached state finalist for the 6A division. Furthermore, the Clear Springs High School team was named the Robot Skills Champion, according to the release.
“I am very proud of our students and sponsors for the work they have put in,” Jobe said. “We also feel very fortunate to provide this space for Robotics teams throughout the region and state to compete at.”
