Pender County Schools

Science instructor Jared Pinkston from Pender High School joined us to talk about science programs going on at Pender High-and in Pender County in general.  For instance, Pender County Schools received a grant that makes it possible for high school students to take part in a world-wide robot competition called 1st Inspire Robotics.  The work on a robot for the challenge is centered at Pender High, but students from other high schools are invited to participate.
