STEM Gals Participation
Female driver, operator, and human player. We encourage all people on your drive team to be new to the role that they will be performing during this special tournament, so please don't use members of your competition drive team in their normal roles (outside of the drive coach). If your team doesn't have enough female members, please feel free to use family members, members from other teams, etc. The goal of this tournament is to get more female members of our community in roles that they may not have experienced before, including driving and drive coaching.
NTX Alliance Selection
The top 8 teams are not allowed to select each other. The selection sequence will be 1-8; 8-1. Since alliance selection will be outside the top 8, teams will not be allowed to decline unless they cannot stay for playoffs.
Students from the Rockwall High School Robotics Team, Full Metal Jackets, organize cell phone donation barrels for Secure The Call, which provides free 911 cell phones for those in need, including senior citizen centers, women/domestic violence centers and police.
Team 5431 is collecting Halloween costumes for children who are staying at the Samaritan Inn. The Samaritan Inn serves homeless families and individuals. In 2018, the Inn served 577 residents; 173 of them were children.
