Tenaha Robotics’ Team wins special contest! The Tenaha team was one of four invited to participate in the contest held in memory of the 15th anniversary of the Space Shuttle Columbia’s disaster upon reentry into the Earth’s atmosphere. The students were to select a planet or satellite and design a community that could survive in outer space. The Robotic Team, made up of Andrew Tyner, Lourdes Perez, Drew Henry and Irvin Barona, chose Mars. They had to include food source, heat supply, waste disposal, and water supply.
The students also had an opportunity to meet with NASA engineers after the contest.
The first place team will present their winning Mars project at the February 19th School Board meeting.
