INSPIRING Webster high school students to be Today's Leaders and Innovators
A SparX sub team designed and built a basketball shooter as a post competition project in support of Thomas High School's Unified Basketball program. Adam and Ryan delivered the shooter at the May 20th game. Liam made several baskets from the free throw line and the cloud went wild!

Nine robot teams competed on October 13, 2018 in this year’s Xylem Let’s Solve Water Challenge. Teams had to design and build a laminar flow water cannon capable shooting a ~3’ slug of water into 6 buckets placed a various distances up to 25’.
Four $1000 Awards were given for:
