DSHS Robotics Team Wins Award at Championships

At the World Championship FIRST Robotics Competition April 22, the DSHS team "Spring Konstant" finished 34th out of 67 teams in the Galileo Division, winning five of 10 qualification matches. Although they were not chosen to play in the finals, the Spring Konstant team members were recognized by the judges with the Rookie Inspiration Award.

Spring Konstant was the only American team to win a rookie award, with the other awards going to teams from Mexico, Turkey, and Israel. This award is a message from the FIRST Robotics community that the Spring Konstant is one of the top 12 rookie teams in the world this year. It is an extremely high honor to win an award at the Championship level, based on the students' explanation of their design process and community service to the judges.

Spring Konstant has one more competition this spring: the UIL Texas State Championships on May 19-20 at the Austin Convention Center. The event is free and open to the public.

In addition, team members will be driving the robot around on STEM Day at Dripping Springs High School on Saturday, May 6, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
