In May, I posted this announcement about the Ronan (Montana) High School SmartLab robotics team winning the world championships.
Now we learn that Ronan has received an invitation to exhibit their winning design in the Smithsonian Institution! Wow!!! The robot will be featured in an interactive exhibit this spring called Math Alive.
This great news comes as the Ronan robotics grows by leaps and bounds. The Ronan robotics program has become so popular that SmartLab facilitator Jesse Gray has had to split the group into two teams. And there’s this — Montana State University is looking to enroll students from the Ronan SmartLab in their robotics degree program!
Who knew Ronan would become such a hub for robotic engineering?
And for the almost all of you who’ve never heard of Ronan Montana, Google Maps to the rescue!
