FIRST Robotics provides students with an opportunity to work as a team to develop skills in creativity, engineering, problem-solving, leadership and marketing. The team meets after school at the LISD TECH Center in November and December in preparation for the “build season” in January-February. Competitions are generally held February-April.
NTHS was developed to honor student achievement, leadership, promote educational excellence, and encourage community service. Any student who maintains a 3.2 grade point average at their local high school and a 3.5 in their LISD TECH Center class is eligible to apply for membership in the NTHS organization.
