Southwest Airlines donates to Beaver MST's robotics team

Beaver Technology Center for Math & Science's robotics team, the Beaver Bots, participate in a VEX Challenge as part of the campus's unique math and science curriculum.  In the VEX Challenge, students design and build a robot to compete against other teams in game-based engineering challenges. Teamwork, leadership and communication skills are on full display and put to the test during competition.

The Beaver Bots recently had the opportunity to visit Southwest Airlines for a Data Science Fair, and while there, the Southwest team held a T-shirt drive to raise money for the Bots' future competitions. Southwest Airlines made a surprise visit to the school Nov. 22, presenting the Beaver robotics program a check for $1,250.
