On February 26 through the 28 Francisco Becerril, Norberto Barragan, Joaquin J. Contreras and Jose D. Noriega traveled to Laredo, Texas and competed in Texas A&M International University Robotics Competition. They competed amongst a large pool of Gear Up students from all over south Texas including Early College and La Hoya High School. These students showed the true excellence C.C. Winn students have to offer by being awarded Best Design for this year’s objective which was to rescue a man from Mars. They also received a Congressional Certificate of Recognition from U.S Representative for Texas's 28th congressional district, Henry Cuellar.
These students will travel to Dallas to tour the stomping grounds of Texas Instruments. They will get a full tour so students are aware of the different areas Texas Instruments works with in the hopes that they would soon intern and become the future of the STEM community.
