After much work, three levels, elementary, middle and high, have qualified for the World Champion VEX Robotics Competition because of this they are currently selling t-shirts and hoodies for their supporters.

“It’s odd for all three levels to have robotics and then for all three levels to be going to worlds is a pretty unique thing,” Christie Schmitt, engineering teacher, said.

The t-shirts themselves will not make any profit for the teams, but the VEX program does have a GoFundMe as well as a golf tournament on April 13 set up to help with the cost which is on average $400-$500 per student though the high school students will be paying a little less.

T-shirts and hoodies can be purchased through Wednesday from this link: https://www.customink.com/g/yzf0-00ay-g43b.
