2016 WINNER

2016 Robert L. Morris Academic Grant Winner was Ann Robichaux, VCHS. 

The project made possible by last years grant recipient was just completed and revealed to the community. The proceeds were used to start an underwater robotics club at VCHS.  The students have completed two ROVs and are almost finished with another.  They conducted  sea trials at the local YMCA on Saturday, May 13th for the community to witness.  Ms. Robichaux said, "The students have learned so much about engineering during the design and build process and are likely to learn much more as we put them in the water.  Thanks for supporting STEM education!"
