Woodstock Elementary School would like to thank Allen's Food Mart for donating $500 to our school through the Educational Alliance Program that ExxonMobil has created. This program focuses on improvements in math and science from pre-school to higher education. For this reason, Woodstock Elementary has chosen to put this money toward the school's Robotics Team.
Recently, the Robotics Team competed in a VEX Robotics Competition held at Shelton State under the leadership of Kristin Lightsey and Sheryll Morris. In a VEX Robotics Competition, teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications, and more. Woodstock is pleased to announce that they placed 34th out of 69 teams in their first ever competition. Team members include: Elizabeth Avans, JC Hubbard, Yiam Rodriguez, Brayden Greene, Blair Skrobak, and Hazella Gilmore.
