An all-girl robotics team from Sunset High School is the first ever Dallas ISD team to qualify for the Robotics World Championships in FTC.
Sunset’s 8811 Robo* Bison Amistad team is competing in this week’s World Championship in FTC in Houston. It’s a grueling four-day, 128 team competition against the best in the world.
“As a young woman, society doesn’t expect me to be involved in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) field, so joining robotics was a great challenge and reward,” said Karen Garcia, one of the four members of the advancing team. “I never expected myself to be so involved and interested in STEM, but FIRST Robotics helped me acknowledge its value and importance.”
