Creativity on display at University High

On Saturday, October 29, the Heart of Texas BEST Robotics Challenge featured 26 schools in a head-to-head robotics competition that displayed student creativity, ingenuity, designing and math skills. The competition was held on the campus of University High School.

Heart of Texas BEST is a yearly engineering contest designed to inspire students towards further studies in the fields of science and engineering. Starting with a box of raw materials, teams of high school students were given six weeks to design, build, and demonstrate a functional remote-controlled machine that would perform a given task.

Student teams from A.J. Moore Academy and University High competed against 24 other Central Texas high schools for the right to advance to the regional championship in Dallas. The winning team was from Reicher Catholic High School in Waco.
