Robotics Coming to Mesick Schools Thanks to $9K From the State

Mesick Schools are excited to be one of the Michigan schools chosen to for a grant to start up a robotics club for students.

“Competition will just be a lot of fun seeing if our robot really works how we want it to,” said Mitchell Rogers, a sophomore at Mesick High School.

The state’s goal is to prepare students for potential future careers.

This money will pay for registration fees and their robot kits.

Although robotics season is not quite here, students got some practice making an arm.

The school says they already have around 20 students signed up for this new after school program.

They are excited to be able to provide this for students.

“We’re really excited. It was nice to get that grant. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without and it’s always nice to offer these extras for our kids in a small district sometimes it’s hard to have these types of things for kids to do,” said Scott Morey, middle and high school principal at Mesick.

Schools will be at the robotics season kick off on Jan. 5 at Ferris State University.
