New Build Space Open House

Mark your calendars for Thursday, August 24

We are excited to announce a dedicated space for Kentwood robotics.  In the past, we have shared classroom space with Mr. Smith at EKHS.  We now have a dedicated space at the Freshman Campus that includes a large room for our equipment and meetings, 3 small group workrooms, and storage space.  We would love to have you join us in the dedicating the new space, meeting the next generation of engineering/scientist, and enjoying cake and cookies.
