WV Robotics Team Competed at the World Championships!

A Message from the Director, Eric Groshoff -

The WVHS robotics team -“CHUCK”- wants to thank the school board, district office, and the WVHS staff in supporting the students in the FIRST Robotics World Championship.

The team traveled to Houston, Texas where they competed with the top 400 teams from 39 countries around the world. Our division had teams from all over the US, Australia, Israel, Turkey, United Kingdom, Canada, Mexico, and Switzerland.

After two days of tough qualifying matches the team made it to finals. This is an accomplishment we would have only dreamed about a few years back. Our robot alliance consisted of teams from South Carolina, Texas, and Utah. CHUCK performed at their best in the playoffs, but lost to a powerhouse team in the quarterfinals.

In addition to competition the team took advantage of Houston’s cultural opportunities. We experienced Texan hospitality, ate Texas BBQ, and were able to experience a true Texas-sized downpour! The students visited NASAs Johnson Space Center, Houston Museum of Natural Science, Houston Zoo, and the Downtown Aquarium. The highlights were walking through a Space Shuttle, touching the most complete T-Rex skeleton in the world, and observing Fabergé: Royal Gifts featuring the Trellis Egg Surprise.

Again… we want to thank the West Valley Community for your continued support!

WV Students Build Tiny Houses for Homeless

WVHS construction students are participating in a project to build a tiny house that will be used for transitional homeless housing. KREM 2 did a feature on Mr. Leinweber's class! It's very impressive what these students are accomplishing!

Twenty-two teams of students were selected by state's Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board to compete in the first ever CTE Showcase of Skills Homeless Shelter Project competition. The project brings together students from high school and college to demonstrate their technical skills as they build portable, energy efficient, homeless shelters. Each team has five students and received a $2,500 stipend to build the home. Instructor David Leinweber will tow the tiny house to Olympia where the students will spend seven hours today (Monday 3/27) putting the finishing touches on the tiny house. The houses will then be shipped to Seattle to be used as transitional homeless housing. Winners of the construction competition will be announced March 27. Good luck Eagles!
