RackSpace loves NEISD Robotics

Roosevelt cluster robotics students were invited by Rackspace to come to their facility for a fun day filled with technology and robots!  The students came for a tour of the building, enjoyed lunch with the Rackers and showed off their robotics skills.  The kids couldn’t decide what was the best part; the awesome slide or the biggest word search in the world!  The experience was great for the kids to see “technology” at work and to get them excited about a career in technology.

Through Rackspace’s generosity, Camelot, Windcrest and Walzem elementary schools; Krueger Middle School; and Roosevelt High School, were able to participate in the First Lego League and compete in several competitions.  This was a great opportunity for the students to use team work to solve every day problems with robotics and technology.  Most schools would not have been able to participate in the First Lego League without the support of Rackspace.

We send big thank you to Rackspace and Annie Vu for their generosity, help and for believing in our kids! We appreciate all you do for the schools in your area.
