Paducah Innovation Hub reaches out to middle schools for Regional Robotics Rally

The Paducah Innovation Hub is playing host to the Regional Robotics Rally, an event that took place Tuesday and Thursday that introduces sixth-graders from other schools to the field of robotics with hands-on experience.

Tim Franklin, the Makerspace director of the Paducah Innovation Hub, said the event is an outreach to regional schools. Crittenden County Middle School and Fulton Middle School were in the rally on Tuesday, and Fulton County Middle School and McLean County Middle School are taking part Thursday.

“We received a federal grant with the cooperation of the West Kentucky Education Cooperative and the GEAR UP initiative to offer computer science to students in the 10-county river region,” he said.
