Kingston High robotics update

 

Where does some of the money we raise go? To robotics.

"On behalf of the Kingston High School Robotics Club, our foundation as well as all NK students and teachers we want to thank you for your continued support over the years," said Allison Pringle, Director of Donor Relations. "We appreciate your support of the robotics team as they were able to get the motors for their submarines so they can compete in a June robotics competition. I was able to join them at their club time and take some pictures. They are just in the beginning phases of their building but the excitement and energy was palatable!"
Look for an update later when the subs are complete.
