Members of the Sachse High School Robotics teams were recognized for their accomplishments during a recent city council meeting. The team received second place at the Vex World Championships in Kentucky.

Mayor Mike Felix said the skill of robotics has captured the interest of many students across the country.

“It is an honor to recognize these dedicated students and their school sponsor for all their hard work,” he said.

Felix explained that Sachse High School has six Vex Robotics teams that design and build robots in order to compete in Vex Robotics competitions. Beginning in November through spring, each Sachse Robotics team uses science, technology, engineering and math or STEM program to design, build and program their robot.

“Those robots were a team effort and are used in local and regional competitions which are attended by hundreds of people in the community,” he said. “While competing, the students take on the roles of drivers and coaches and develop strategies for the challenges of the competition.”
