Osceola County Commissioner Cheryl Grieb recently presented a check to Neptune Middle School for $3,000 to help cover costs that the school’s robotics team incurred when they participated in the recent 2022 VEX Robotics World Championship in Texas.
“It was my pleasure to present to the students at Neptune Middle for their recent participation in the world robotics championship. This was a great opportunity for these kids to compete on a world stage,” Osceola County Commissioner for District 4 Cheryl Grieb shared after the presentation of the grant.
Presented by Northrop Grumman Foundation and the REC Foundation, the competition brought over 3,000 teams from 36 nations together to celebrate STEM excellence.
Student-led teams ranging from elementary to university-level showcased their strategy, teamwork, and desire to be crowned champions at this world-class global event held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.
