Coonabarabran High School’s Robotics Team, ‘Supernova Star Squad’, although very disappointed that this year’s tournaments were cancelled, were excited to find out that they were one of the successful applicants for an Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations Program grant.
The Inland Rail grant has provided the team with much-needed high-quality hand and power tools, and storage equipment. The tools were sourced locally with the help from the supportive staff at Roach’s Hardware and will come in very handy when building a robot.
The team is very excited about competing in next year’s tournaments and have already been enjoying the use of the new ‘fancy’ tools and can’t wait to see what they can achieve with them.
A big thank you to Inland Rail for supporting STEM in small communities!
