On October 7-8, Plano ISD robotics hosted the FIRST (For Inspiration & Recognition of Science & Technology) NTX Tournament of Robots at Williams High School. Three robotics teams from the district competed: the Academy High School team 5431 Titan Robotics, Plano Senior High team 6171 Chain Reaction and team 9999 a collaborative team which included students from the Academy High School, Plano Senior High and Allen High School. Fast paced and high energy would aptly describe this event. Cheering was heard in the stands, and team flags were waving as the bots competed. As is typical when the pressure is on, there was celebratory fist pumping accompanied by leaping and whoops of joy as the competition got heated in the elimination matches. The tournament was an off-season event with 25 teams competing. Competition was fierce, but unlike other competitive events, robotics tournaments have an element of collaboration among the teams.
