Leading Bearcat Robotics: The Story of Breese Reagle

A Leader in Robotics

Mr. Breese Reagle is leading the way for Bearcat Robotics at Elise Middle School.  The 8th Grade Social Studies teacher was recently awarded a $2,800 grant from the Public Education Foundation ( to purchase six Lego Mindstorms EV3 robots to utilize in all classes and allow for the expansion of the robotics team.  His goal: provide more students at Elise with an opportunity to participate in robotics.

Interest in robotics at Elise has grown exponentially over the past few years as more students become exposed to the world of robotics.  This year Elise Middle had 138 out of approximately 200 students interested in joining the robotics team.  Due to the lack of robotics kits, many of these students would not get the opportunity to fully participate in the program. The additional robotics kits will provide these students with an opportunity to expand their learning at Elise through the robotics program; an opportunity that would not exist without the leadership of Mr. Reagle.    

Congratulations to Breese on receiving the robotics grant.  Your hard work and dedication to the students at Elise Middle is greatly appreciated!
