Motorola Foundation Funds New Robotics Competition

Program pairs high schoolers with collegiate mentors to develop next generation of engineers

July 12, 2010

A new program funded by the Motorola Foundation will bring together engineering students from Michigan State University with teams of students from underrepresented high schools to learn principles of engineering while designing and building robots for competition. The uG9-12 (undergraduate and 9-12 grades) Robotics Competition-Driven Mentoring Program was selected to receive $60,200 as part of the Innovation Generation grant program from the Motorola Foundation.
