Faculty from the Department of Physics and Astronomy assisted, as lead mentors for the MHS FIRST Robotics team, in applying for a sponsorship grant for the team from NASA. The team was notified yesterday that it was awarded a grant for this academic year. The grant, which is very competitive, provides sponsorship for one year of competition while the team works on securing a permanent sponsor.
