In June 2015, the REC Foundation awarded our district a grant that provides VEX EDR robotics, equipment, and training to establish robotics programs at 30 schools each year. Overall, this grant will provide equipment and technical assistance to more than 120 schools over the next four years. It also will support JCPS in hosting regional robotics competitions. Participating schools at the middle and high school levels build and program VEX EDR robots to perform basic functions and compete at the local regional tournament each spring. Winning teams advance to state and national competitions.
