Trickum Middle School robotics team to travel to Houston for world robotics championships

The Trickum Middle School robotics team — known as the TigerBots — will travel to Houston in April to compete in the 2022 FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics World Championships. The state-champion TigerBots are one of 108 teams competing; there were 24,000 teams from 50 countries in the running.

“I’m really honored to be representing our city and our state,” said robotics team member Michelle Diep, an eighth-grader at Trickum Middle. “We worked really hard and this is something we’ll take with us for the rest of our lives.”
