Harmony Teams Dominate World Stage in Robotics Championships
Harmony Public Schools is a high performing K-12 public charter school network, one of the largest in the nation. As college prep schools with an intensive focus on STEM education, one of the many great accomplishments of Harmony is to inspire and build the next generation of innovative engineers and technology gurus. This is evident in all Harmony campuses across the state of Texas through our robotics programs offered at each elementary, middle, and high school level. In fact, many Harmony schools have multiple robotics teams challenging one another, competing against each other and bringing back so many trophies over the years. In the past, we had several Harmony schools advanced to compete at national and international FIRST Robotics competitions, but this year is exceptional. We have 8 different teams from 6 Harmony schools that have recently won their regional and state robotics competitions and have been invited to three of the largest world-wide robotics competitions hosted in the United States. Congratulations to all of our students and their teachers, coaches, and mentors for making this a dream season for Harmony robotics teams. Here are the results from 2014-2015 robotics seasons:
