A group out of Clovis Unified School District is working to raise $500,000 for the district’s high schools to create, run and maintain a robotics program.
Clovis Unified teams that have competed in FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) robotics competitions have joined together to form Project CURIE, or Clovis Unified Robotics Initiative for Engineering.
The group has set a five-year goal of raising half a million dollars to promote robotics programs in the district.
To get the word out, Project CURIE is hosting a carnival-themed open house on July 13 from 3-9 p.m. at Clovis Veteran’s Memorial District’s Liberty Ballroom at 808 4th St. in Clovis.
The open house will feature robots from Clovis Unified, including the 2015 FIRST World Champions, the Buchanan Bird Brains.
The public is invited to enjoy food and entertainment.
