Grant expands robotics opportunities

for more North Carolina students

  Nearly 12,000 students across North Carolina will benefit from $1.6 million in grants for robotics programs approved this month by the State Board of Education. In all, 18 school districts and one charter school will share in the funding to support after-school programs aimed at developing student interest and proficiency in science and math through competitive robotics. The size of individual grants ranges from $24,600 to $316,950, depending on numbers of students to be served and other factors like geographic distribution, and how the program would support students disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
