The City of Waco issued a proclamation declaring April 16, 2018, as Reicher Robotics Day as Reicher Catholic students prepare to compete in the first world robotic’s competition this week.
The team of 16 students earned a spot in the competition after winning several matches with a robot they designed, built and programmed.
"I feel very honored to get this recognition. I really would've never guessed. The kids have come a long way and they definitely deserve it for the work and time they've put into it," said Reicher High School Robotics Head Coach Brian Battery
The team is expected to compete against 128 teams from more than 20 countries in Houston.
The school also hosted a send-off for the students at the end of the school day on Monday.
