COL (US Army Ret.) Michael Taliento, CMCSS Director of Army Instruction, said, “the JROTC Robotics Programs and these VEX kits seek to inspire students to become the problem-solving heroes of tomorrow.”

Robotics teams will consist of 4 to 6 JROTC cadets and other students who will be co-coached by both JROTC instructors and STEM or CTE teachers.
