Adair schools win robotics grant
ADAIR — Google Inc. has awarded Adair Public Schools a grant to help the school's robotics program. The $13,375 grant is part of the company's science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) initiative. Andrea Hudson, Adair Schools First Robotics team leader, said the grant will enable students to continue learning from the robotics program, which lets students design, build and program robots to meet specific objectives. The robotics program started in 2009. “A robotics program can help schools make technology fun and interesting for their students,” said Mike Wooten, operations manager for the Google data center in Pryor. “At Google, we strive to find creative ways to be innovative. We hope to give the students of Adair Public Schools the same opportunity.”
