Mount Vernon Township High School student robot designers are getting a boost as they pursue skills in science and engineering, as the the Monsanto Fund recently awarded a one-time $5,000 grant to the school’s competition robotics team, the RoboRams.

Employees from the Monsanto plant in Centralia invited the RoboRams to apply for the grant in September and they will use the funds received to participate in FIRST Robotics and its educational programs and competitions.

FIRST challenges teams of students to design, build and program their own robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors — immersing young students in real-world engineering experiences.
