Sen. Jeanne Shaheen meets with H/B FIRST Robotics Competition team

On Jan. 14, U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH, met with Hollis/Brookline High School’s award-winning FIRST Robotics Competition team in Hollis. During her visit, Shaheen discussed legislation she introduced last year that would create a competitive grant program for non-traditional science, technology, engineering and math educational programs like the FIRST Robotics Competition. Shaheen plans to reintroduce the legislation this year.

This weekend is the regional competition for area FIRST Robotics teams, being held Friday and Saturday at Southern New Hampshire University.
