Congratulations to Nikki Brooks for receiving a Cobb School's
Foundation Grant to purchase a class set of Reprogrammable
Recon 6.0 Rover Robots. There are many educational benefits
from students being exposed to this creative and innovative
approach to education. We are teaching the future engineers and
scientists in our schools and need to help supply experiences to
keep them competitive with other students around the country.
Reprogrammable Robots will help expose all students to higher
level thinking within technology.

money for listening stations for primary classrooms, iPads for
each classroom teacher, and educational apps to download on the
