Middle School Gets Grant

Posted: Updated:
Jacksboro Middle School has won $2,500 dollars to further its after school Robotics Program.  The grant comes from the ATPE Foundation. 

The robotics program was started in 2010 and to date, more than 150 children have learned how to build, design, and program robots through the effort.  The grant will be used to buy a class set of Lego EV3 Robots for the school.  They will replace the robots currently being used, which are more than 10 years old.

Jacksboro Middle School is one of two public schools in Texas to receive the grant this year.
