Hero and Project Description: 

Willford’s innovative teaching idea, “Engineering for Rural Students,” focuses on expanding and enhancing the district’s current robotics program. With the Voya grant, Willford will acquire more materials that allow teams to keep and protect their class material in one place in order to enhance their creative designs. Students involved in the project will develop a technical writing component in which student teams will submit designs and proposals with a request for materials they need. This will improve team collaboration, planning, and productivity which are all a key components of engineering careers. Willford hopes to expand the availability of the program and provide up to twice as many students the opportunity to take these classes.
