FIRST Robotics Hands Out Bursaries


A handful local high school graduates are getting some help with their post-secondary education courtesy of Windsor-Essex FIRST Robotics.

Five $1,000 bursaries have been handed out in honour of James Broom and Spencer James — the pair were integral to the local robotics scene and both passed away in 2014.

FIRST Robotics is a high school program where students work alongside professional mentors in the creation of robots.

More than 1,000 students make up over 80 robotics teams in Windsor-Essex and Chatam-Kent.
