    Grocery shopping isn't a chore when there are robots involved.

    Spring Station Middle students are programming LEGO Mindstorm robots to navigate a maze and pick up groceries before returning to the starting point. SSMS robotics teacher Jenny Stevenson issued the assignment to test her students' problem-solving skills, and they are enjoying the challenge.

    "The robots have a bit of unpredictability," said SSMS student Nathan Hoggard. "Sometimes they just make wonky turns or don't go the right distance. You've got to be really precise with them. It requires you to think, and it can be a bit difficult. I like it."
