Last year one of our freshman students joined two dozen students from around the county in asking the Chief Operating Officer of the Montgomery County School system some questions. She asked Andrew Zuckerman about what opportunities there were to expand FIRST robotics programs. Andrew’s response mirrored responses we have received from school board members and from members of the superintendents office that focused on budget constraints.
Check out the video here, our student asked the last question.
The team is going to be scheduling time with county council, school board, state level representatives and federal representatives in 2016 in hopes of moving the needle of getting Robotics represented as a sport.
