Students Look to Expand Robotics

Wisconsin students who are involved in a worldwide robotics program are lobbying state lawmakers for the money to expand. 

Participants with “FIRST”, a tech-centered nonprofit K through 12 development initiative, visited the Capitol Rotunda yesterday, bringing examples of their robotics projects along.  Whitewater High School junior Maddison Lahaie says it takes about 70-thousand each year to fund the activities for her team, money that is typically raised through small grants and sponsors.  She says the group would like to see more funding at the state level to expand access to the program to underserved Wisconsin communities.
