The Blue Water Robotics Alliance will be getting a new venue to hone their robotics skills. A 6,000 square foot building on Petit Street in Port Huron is being provided by P.J. Wallbank Springs, Inc. In the new space set to open next week, 10 area teams will use the space to collaborate and become more competitive with Metro Detroit area teams.
The Blue Water Robotics Alliance includes all of St. Clair County’s school districts. The effort to have one centralized location where all of the teams could get together to practice and collaborate was spearheaded by Dan Kiehler of Memphis High School and Steven Tenniswood of St. Clair High School. The field within the structure cost over $23,000. Funds for that field were provided through the work of the Eastern Michigan Manufacturing Association (EMMA), the Economic Development Alliance of St. Clair County (EDA), Blue Meets Green, and the Community Foundation of St. Clair County. An open house and name reveal will take place on October 8th at the Petit Street location.
