A Blessing Box Food Drive, sponsored by the recently formed Team Tungsten Robotics of Rankin County, will be underway on Tues. Nov. 6 and run through Fri. Dec. 21 at the Pearl Public Library.
The Blessing Box is a community outreach event the robotics students chose to hold to fulfill one of their requirements. There are five members of Team Tungsten Robotics, ages 11 and 12, who work together as a team to design a build a robot. Team members will be available to answer questions at the Family Night program.
Team Tungsten Robotics, started in August, is mentored by the Wait For It Robotics team of Pearl which won the World Championship robotics competition in Houston, TX last year.
For more information you can call robotics' team coach and Pearl Library staffer, Holly Hardin at 601-932-2562.
Come on by the Pearl Library and be a part of this wonderful community event. And, don't miss Family Night with Zoe Brumfield!
We'll see you there!
