From robots to facilities improvement projects to culinary creations, this year’s Education Excellence Fair at the 2019 PASA-PSBA School Leadership Conference had a little of everything. Students and staff from a variety of districts lined the Great Lobby on Wednesday and Thursday to talk with attendees about their exemplary programs.

FRobotics, a student-led FIRST Robotics team at Franklin Regional High School, focuses on providing STEM and leadership education to students. The students compete in challenges outlined by FIRST every year and are given six weeks to build their robot. This year, the FRobotics team qualified for the World Championship and won three of their off-season competitions.
