Brainerd High School demonstrates robotics program to WDC students

From left, Brainerd sophomore Alex Ryan demonstrates how the robotic model works to WDC juniors Andrew Lemke and Dylan Gilster.

Members of the Brainerd Warrior robotics team visited M-State recently to demonstrate a robotics model they built, as well as share with Wadena-Deer Creek High School students how successful -- and fun -- their program is at Brainerd High School. WDC High School is currently recruiting members to be a part of a new robotics program, which will begin in early January. Thanks to a $6,500 grant from JC Penneys Store in Alexandria, WDC High School is now registered to compete in this program.

The mission of the robotics program is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders. WDC school board president and parent Ann Pate is leading the mentor-based program that aims to build science, engineering and technology skills, as well as inspire innovation. Aside from student team members, Pate is looking for community members to help mentor this program. If you are interested, contact WDC School District office at (218) 632-2155.
