As many of you know, current Hillsboro students have been engaged in robotics for many years, some for over a decade. All of our teams compete in FIRST robotics (See www.firstinspires.org to learn more). In fact, Emmy won the prestigious Dean’s List Award and can be seen in this year’s promotional video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRsu7bRFhx4). Hannah is featured driving our robot (www.firstinalabama.org) in a photo featured on the Alabama state webpage for FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC). All three of our high school team members recently refereed at the Battle of the Brook regional event qualifier in Crestline, and their photo was on al.com (they are the referees shown) http://www.al.com/opinion/index.ssf/2017/12/alabama_robotics_champs_headin.html).
We also have teams for students in elementary as well as kindergarten. If you would like to know more or if your child would like to participate, contact the school to learn more.
