Zumbrota/Mazeppa Robotics Team Receives $1000 Grant


The Zumbrota/Mazeppa Robotic team 7273 received a grant for $1000 in January from the Zumbrota Community Trust Organization to help supply Robotic Youth with prescription safety glasses. With the money from the grant, each Youth that wears glasses has an opportunity to get one pair of prescription safety glasses to use during their years on the Robotic Club. When the Youth build or around the robot plus at competition, they are to be wearing safety glasses or googles over their glasses. With the grant money they do not have to worry about scratching or breaking their own glasses when wearing goggles over them. In the Robotic program the Youth are assigned a task for the year for the robot. After learning the task, the Youth must engineer, build, code and learn to drive the robot in about 8 weeks. This year the team competed in Duluth on February 29, March 1 and 2. Everyone had a great time at the competition.
