Brandenburg Intermediate School’s robotics program plans to take additional teams to next year’s competition thanks to a $1,000 grant donated by Cricket Wireless.
Brandenburg was selected as one of only 16 schools in the nation to receive a grant from Cricket’s “Go Positive” campaign. The campaign contributes money to organizations, like Brandenburg’s robotics club, that make sure students are doing positive things at school every day. Cricket representatives said these organizations often go unnoticed, but provide a great community service.
Representatives from Cricket Wireless presented the check at Brandenburg Thursday, December 10. Steven Pettit, Brandenburg’s robotics sponsor, said the team will use the money to buy additional robot kits and replacement parts.
