Williamston InvenTeam

We are excited to announce the Williamston High School InvenTeam was recently awarded a grant of $9,900 from the Lemelson-MIT Program to create an automated, electronic device for helping students with neurodevelopmental disabilities with opening their lockers. The device, which will be light, durable and portable, will be programmed with the student's locker combination and perform the turning of the combination dial. The team, comprised of 11 students from the Williamston High School Mathematics and Science Academy, will be working to create a prototype of their invention to present at EurekaFest at the campus of MIT in June.

If you would like to help defray the cost for the team's trip to MIT in June to present their prototype, you can make a tax-deductible donation to InvenTeams through the Williamston Schools Foundation.
