Amazon visited a local Oklahoma City school, F.D. Moon Academy, to surprise students with a $10,000 donation of Botball robotic kit equipment.
The Botball program focuses on designing, building and programming a pair of autonomous robots to solve different challenges. The program will expand the school’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) program as the first robotics program to the school.
The donation takes place after Amazon opened its doors in Oklahoma City in October 2017 and included items such as Junior Botball Challenge Robotic Kits and game surfaces with curriculum, Chromebook tablets and a Tech Tub2 Trolley.
