Seven robotics teams from three schools – Orchard Hills School, and Beckman and Foothill high schools, in the Tustin Unified School District are going to the 2017 VEX Robotics World Championship in April. The teams won at the state level last weekend and will compete among 1,400 student-led robotics teams from around the world in Louisville, Kentucky, on April 19 through 25.
Beckman and Foothill are each sending two teams and Orchard Hills is entering three teams – two elementary (fifth grade) and one middle school team to the competition, now going into its 10th year. The teams are led by teacher-coaches Siu Sit, Beckman; Jeff Farr, Foothill; and Nancy Chung, Megan Englebrecht and Liz Root, Orchard Hills.
The Tustin Public Schools Foundation supports the Robotics League and competitions in TUSD and is proud of the teams’ students and coaches.
The District congratulates all three schools and wishes them continued success at the robotics world championship in April. Go TUSD!
