East High School Epsilon Robotics Team

Sioux City, Iowa – A Sioux City Community School District robotics team is going to the world championships. Last weekend, the East High School Epsilon robotics team won the Iowa championship, qualifying the team for the 2024 First® Championship in Houston, Texas, from April 17 through April 20.

Only one of three Iowa teams representing the state in the world championships, this is the second time East High School has qualified for the world championships. The last time the team qualified was in 2020, shortly before the competition was canceled due to the pandemic. Epsilon holds the fifth highest scored match in the United States and the ninth highest scored match in the entire world.

There are approximately 6,500 robotics teams that compete worldwide. Of those, 192 teams compete at the world championships. This puts Epsilon in the top 100 teams in the world.

Epsilon is currently fundraising the $11,000 necessary to cover the cost of registration, travel, and lodging for the world championships. Those interested in assisting the team may contact East High School robotics coaches Garrett Thompson at 712-212-3168 and thompsg20@live.siouxcityschools.com or Trevor Miller at 712-389-0550 and millert@live.siouxcityschools.com.
