#OTGYpsi: Robotics Teams Gives Ypsilanti Students Technological Boost

Jan 30, 2019

Building and working with robots is a fascinating endeavor.  In Ypsilanti, high school students can get a head start in such high-tech feats, while making some great, emotional connections along the way.  In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg talk to members of the Grizzly Robotics Team, as well as one of their mentors, Dan Schunck.
