In what’s dubbed the first integrated health care village in the world and largest health care project in the nation at $1.2 billion, Union Village in Henderson is starting to take shape.
The Henderson business community donated more than $15,000 to help local robotics teams travel to Louisville, Kentucky to compete in the VEX Robotics Worlds Competition.
In an initiative called "Biz + Bots," the Henderson Chamber of Commerce Foundation was able to raise $12,500 to support teams from Nate Mack Elementary, Greenspun Jr. High and Basic Academy of International Studies. Mayor-elect Debra March also contributed $1,000, and Tronox donated $2,500 directly to Basic Academy.
A group of Henderson students involved in robotics clubs at their various schools recently competed in a world championship with the help of area businesses.
Students from Greenspun Junior High, Basic Academy of International Studies and Nate Mack Elementary earned spots in the 2017 VEX Robotics Worlds competition in Louisville, Ky., after netting state titles in their respective age divisions earlier this year.
