The Journal Times: An eighth-grade student from Walden III Middle School has won a $5,000 grant for his robotics club, the Racine Unified School District announced this week.
“I try to fix little problems and then just see if I change this a little, how does it change the whole thing. It’s really cool to look and say, I created this, I did this myself,” Nolan Tremelling, who won the $5,000 SC Johnson grant, said in an article posted on Racine Unified’s website.
Last year he went to a state competition and placed 15th, which is about half way. This year he is trying to win first place, but to do that he knew he needed updated equipment.
