MADISON, NJ –In last week’s Board of Education meeting, Joe Kennedy provided an update on the Madison High School Robotics Team. He said the program is “very strong and building.” It has grown from 82 teams and is likely to approach 100. The top five finishers in the program this year were from New Jersey.
Kennedy said that those who graduated from Madison High School in June who participated in the program went to “solid universities.” Scholarships offered through schools that accept robotics students offered up to $100,000 in scholarships. $50,000 in scholarships were taken.
“Our state is doing such a great job with this. Technology minded children have an outlet. The program is crucial to the district,” Kennedy said.
