Pope Robotics Team Receives Two Major Grants

The funds for the "Robohounds" include a competition grant from NASA.


In its first year of existence, the Pope Robotics Team has been selected as one of the recipients of the 2014 NASA Robotics Alliance Project, FIRST Robotics Competition Grant.

Like many robotics teams in the area, they'll be taking part in the FIRST Robotics Competition in January. 

Automated Logic/UTC also has signed on as a major sponsor of the "Robohounds," who also have been getting support from GE Volunteers, PG Promotions Inc., Honeywell Safety Products and Walton Robotics.  

Automated Logic also will provide a $6,000 grant to help get the Pope team rolling for the season. The Robohounds' adviser is Pope career tech teacher Scott Keesee. 

This Friday, the Robohounds will offer a Minecraft Camp/Parents Night Out event from 6-10 p.m. at the school (3001 Hembree Road) for students from 4th-8th grades. The cost is $25 per child and includes a pizza dinner.

All required equipment will be provided, but each child must have an existing Minecraft account and know how to log in. Reservations and advance payment is required: Online Reservation form
