‘A decade of work’ Richland Two school wins nationwide grant to bring robotics to the classroom

By Jacob Reynolds, WLTX 19 CBS

BLYTHEWOOD, S.C. — Students at a Richland Two School District middle school will have new opportunities to use robots in many of its classes after the school won a nationwide grant.

For two years, Kelly Mill Med Pro Middle School in Blythewood has been transitioning to STEAM education with an added medical focus, technically making it STEAMM.

Sixth grade teacher Warren Wise took the focus on STEAMM a step further, urging the school to apply for a UBTECH robotics grant this summer.

Wise was named this year’s STEM Educator of the Year in South Carolina and attended a conference in Florida, where he learned about the grant. Along with the help of the District and curriculum specialist Ezetta Washington Myers, the school applied for the grant.

In October, the District was named one of 22 winners in the United States and the school is the only one in South Carolina to receive the grant.

Wise said bringing robots to class will teach kids about everyday life and future jobs. ( Watch Coverage Here )
