Viola Robotics Team at World Championship


Our part of the competition ended Friday afternoon. While our record may have been 0-10, our students learned a lot and were able to meet people from all around the world. This event is truly a world championship. We have also forged friendships with robotics teams  here at home in Arkansas, and we are truly thankful for that.

We are also thankful for all of the support that our school, local and area businesses, and our friends and family have given to us. Without your support, our trip to Worlds would not have been possible.
