This fall we applied for the Vermont Academy of Science and Engineering (VASE) Hands-On Science and Technology (HOST) Grants program. The VASE HOST grants are given yearly and are primarily intended for science, technology, and robotic clubs/teams in Vermont. Typically about 10 grants are awarded ranging from $500-1,000.
This year the Manchester Machine Makers has been awarded a grant of $1,000 to create two Programming Boards. In the past we borrowed school programming boards so it will be helpful to finally have our own. For those who don’t know what a Programming Board is, it’s basically the necessary hardware needed for a programmer to test and develop code (see photo below). Interested? Check out our programming board page to see how to make your own!
