We are fortunate to have start-up funds to begin a middle school level robotics programs at WMS in the fall. We hope that this will be an enriching experience in the sciences for some of our students. We are seeking assistance with two things. First, if you are a parent/guardian who has an engineering or techinical background and have an interest in providing some mentoring to young students, please send your name to Mr. Mike Munley or Mrs. Jennifer Kent-Bryant so that we might include your expertise as we start the program next fall. Second, we also must seek sponsorships to build our robot and our program. If you own or know of a firm that might like to invest in young students and support this venture, we would appreciate sponsorships. If you are an individual who believes in this venture and wishes to make a donation to the program, we gladly and gratefully welcome your support!
