CB Fabricating Sponsors Frankton Junior High Robotics Club

Frankton Elementary Robotics had a tremendous amount of success last year, but this success created a new problem.  Most of the members on a team that went to World’s last year moved up to seventh grade at the junior high.  The junior high kids wanted a robotics club, but it didn't exist, had no equipment, or even a club leader.  Fortunately, the school administration recognized the need for a Robotics club and in the summer Mrs. Carissa Watters, a junior high math teacher,and Mr. Randy England, an industrial arts teacher, volunteered to lead the club. There was no funding for equipment or supplies. so grants were applied for to purchase the  VEX IQ robots and other necessary equipment over the summer.  One robot was purchased before school started , but there was still a need for about $6,000 to buy additional robots, computers and provide competition funding.  To make matters worse, the required Robots were on backorder for 6 weeks by the time the robot club had its first meeting. Essentially, it became imperative to find some additional donors and money to help the Frankton Junior High Robotics Club get established, get the robots on order, get the kids in training and get ready for the competitions starting in December.

Fortunately, some local companies stepped forward to help out.  CB Fabricating of Anderson, Majestics of Summitville, E&B Paving of Anderson, Solutions4ebiz of Pendleton, Delaware Wood Products of Muncie, and Poet of Alexandria all gave to start the robotics club at Frankton.
