Robotics Contest Helps Develop Future Tech Leaders

When John Sperry first introduced Battlebots to his Anderson High School physics students a few years back, he didn’t think that their interest in robots would help him create a pre-engineering program there or bring recognition to his students. “Anderson had a solid reputation as a school that had great athletic programs, but there wasn’t a way to recognize students who were interested in physics and robotics,” Sperry said.
