The Coconino High Coconuts robotics team is attending the First Championship international Robotics Competition in Texas. They will compete with teams coming from across the US, China, Turkey, Mexico and Canada.

Coach David Thompson says the event inspires students and helps them build confidence. He says it is also a good way for them to build friendship and build communication skills. Team Member Baylee Stringer describes the group as a “family” and “more siblings you can count on.”
