Welcome to SWEETWATER VEX Robotics Family!
Today we have over 75+ VEX teams in Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) schools. Over 6,000 students have been part of SUHSD robotics since 2006.
What makes our District VEX Program different is its magnitude, outreach, continued growth, and sustainability. In the 2008-2009 school year, Hilltop High School started the first VEX robotics team in the district. In the 2010-2011 school year, Otay Ranch High School hosted its first VEX robotics tournament and in 2012-13 and based on the growth of VEX robotics teams across our district, Sweetwater VEX Robotics League was born. High school and middle school students have joined and participated in our district league for 6 years. Last school year (2017-18), we separated high school teams from middle school teams. It was the inaugural year for the Sweetwater Middle Schools VEX Robotics League with the participation of every SUHSD middle school.
This school year (2018-19) we will continue hosting two separate leagues to accommodate the growth of VEX robotics teams in SUHSD:
- Sweetwater Middle Schools VEX Robotics League
- Sweetwater High Schools VEX Robotics League
