About the MISD Robotics Program
The Mansfield ISD Robotics initiative was launched as an effort to ensure educational opportunities for all students delivered through innovative and inspiring teaching methods, as outlined in the MISD Strategic Plan. The pilot program started at Willie Brown Elementary in the fall of 2011.
The success of this pilot sparked a passion for robotics across the district that spread like wildfire. Fueled by funding from LEGO Smart Schools and the Mansfield ISD Education Foundation, our robotics program quickly expanded with robotics clubs at all K-8 campuses and the integration of robotics into the K-4 Tech Apps curriculum.
