    The competition began early in the morning and extended past 3:00 pm. Some of our Robotics students worked as judges and scorers. These were: Jacqueline Lopez, Kendra Ramirez, Leah Hernandez, Yaritza Mendoza, Jackelyn Mayo, Ronaldo Chavez, Anderson Guevara, Ernesto Valle, and Rosa Linares. The tournament was organized and supervised by Mr. Lucien Junkin who is the Robotics Engineer over at NASA in Clear Lake.

    In the end, the winning team was China LeXT 1. The Harvard Teams gave them a run for their money, but they faltered a bit in the final round. They will have the opportunity to try again in the May tournament. Congratulations to the winners and all the participants!
