Willis ISD is in the process of starting the FIRST Robotics Programs on several campuses.
During the 2016-17 season, students participated in FIRST Lego League Jr.
For 2017-2018, we have expanded to include a FIRST Tech Challenge Team at Willis High School.
We are looking forward to expanding the robotics program throughout the district at all levels in the near future.
If you have any questions, please contact one of the staff under the staff link.
Check back again soon for updates.
