Every high school and junior high in the district features excellent robotics programs. Several middle and elementary schools have robotics as well. Time after time Springdale schools earn highest honors in robotics competition. In fact, the Don Tyson School of Innovation Root One Negative team earned the INSPIRE Award, the highest honor possible, at the 2019 World Championships in Houston. Shortly after returning from the competition, the DTSOI team was notified it was selected to represent the United States at the Global Championships in Dubai in October. Several of the DTSOI team members have been involved in robotics since grade school. The district partners with University of Arkansas staff members and representatives of Tyson and Conair in developing innovative robotics programs.
