Grant Funds Robotics

students working on robot

Weaver’s Middle School Coding classes have been working with several Lego Mindstorm EV3 Robot kits, thanks to a grant from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation. Rita Kitchen, the class instructor, applied for and won the grant last spring as a way to bring more programming opportunities to her students. “Through the generosity of the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation, we were able to obtain these robotics sets that are usually cost-prohibitive for schools. My hope is that, as students’ basic coding skills develop, so, too, will the sophistication of what they will be able to do with the robots. My students are very excited about these new kits!”
