The Horlucks Robotics Team from the Jackson Public Schools Career Development Center presented at the Mississippi Manufacturers Association reception on Tuesday, January 22. Lydia Allison, the coordinator of the Mississippi BEST Robotics program at Mississippi State, supported the team as they showcased their robot to the business and legislative attendees of the event. This opportunity gave the students real-life experience delivering formal presentations which are helpful in achieving project objectives. The participating students were Brianna Green, a senior at Provine, and Forest Hill students Latez Ward, 11th grade, and Amari Gaynor, 10th grade. Their instructor is Oluwafemi Oloko, the engineering and robotics instructor at the Career Development Center.
