Building the future at the Western Massachusetts Business Expo

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Western Massachusetts companies kept their eyes firmly on the future during the annual Western Massachusetts Businesses Expo at the MassMutual Center.

Students from Agawam who were at the fair took their interest in math and science one step further. They were building their own robots!

Dana Henry of FIRST Robotic Agawam told 22News “We get the kids excited about building robots. But what we really do, we use the robots as the hook. We’re building students.”

The students involved with building the robots might one day provide the technology that Springfield area businesses might one day find useful.
