Spotlight on Technology: Robotics Club
New to Sam Houston this year, Robotics Club has quickly made a name for itself amongst the members of the technology community. For their debut performance at the winter VEX Middle/High School Competition, the Colts brought home nineteenth place out of forty-three other teams from all across the state of Texas. This was quite an impressive showing with SHMS beating out many veteran competitors.
See the Robotics Club in action! The video below highlights the club's first competition, introduces you to members of the team and shares some great photos of what it takes to build and maintain a working robot! Special thanks to the club's videographer/photographer Jairo Abdad for sharing some of his footage for the video.
