WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

The Columbia Memorial Space Center will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony next Thursday, Jan. 30, for its newly-renovated Robotics Lab.

The space center was recently awarded a $3,500 grant from Best Buy, which allowed the center to upgrade to the newest Lego Mindstorm robots, the EV3’s.

“With funding from the Best Buy grant, we were able to upgrade our Space Center’s Robotics Lab, which was in need of some improvements,” Mayor Fernando Vasquez said in a statement. “We are proud to be able to continue our mission of enhancing and promoting STEM education and learning.”

The ribbon-cutting ceremony begins at 9 a.m .
