Students with the Upward Bound program at Texas Wesleyan compete against each other with their robotics during the second Upward Bound robotics competition.

Watch coverage above of the robotics competition from KTVT/CBS 11 from July 18, 2018. KXII in Sherman, TX also aired the story. 

It was a battle for robot supremacy at Texas Wesleyan. More than 200 students spent the summer creating their own robots, and then put them up against other creations during the second Upward Bound robotics competition at the Science Lecture Theatre.

“I’m very competitive so it makes me excited to play and I just want to enjoy it and win,” Hae Reh, a soon-to-be senior at Trimble Tech told KTVT/CBS 11.

Upward Bound is directed by Faby Rodriguez. Check out its website for more information.

All of the students who took part are students from Polytechnic, Diamond Hill, North Side and Dunbar High Schools in Fort Worth ISD. They spent six weeks on campus with Upward Bound Programs. The competition was part of an Upward Bound robotics summer class taught by Diamond Hill High School’s Walter Parada.
