Learning About Future Technology - MyWabashValley
Terre Haute, IN - More than 100 high school students from as far away as Texas traveled to Rose-Hulman today to get an opportunity to learn about future technology.
10 schools attended the experience.
Students used computer technology and engineering to program vehicles. They were then tested on their ability to navigate courses.
Clay City had an all girls team at the event, who said this is an opportunity like no other.
"Everybody has been helping us out and it's been really good. It's been kind of outside our element too so, just being helped out is good," said Clay City senior Lindsey Stiner.
"I think it's really cool that we're an all girls team, especially because there's not really that many girls here today so, I feel like that's kind of interesting," said Clay City senior Lisa Taney.
Teams that participated in the challenge had to have a minimum of 5 students, and at least one of those, needed to be a female or a minority student.
