• This year is Underwood Elementary's first year to have a robotics team. This team consists of 8 students who were carefully selected. The team name is "Live-Wire Micro-chips." The sponsors are 6th grade teachers, Mollie Hetrick and Mitzi Brooks. The Live Wire Micro-chips plan to compete in a qualifier meet on December 1st, 2018. This year's competition is space themed. The team took a trip to visit the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center where they learned more about this year's theme.

    Good luck guys!!
