TWIN FALLS — Workers are putting final touches on a newly-renovated and expanded robotics classroom at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Magic Valley.

The project is made possible by a $24,392 grant from the Dart Foundation, the clubs announced Friday.

Improvements allow double the number of children participating in the club’s program for robotics and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Enrollment was previous limited to 12 children.

“We are grateful for Dart Foundation’s investment in our Club, our STEM programs, and the youth that will be impacted by their generosity,” Boys & Girls Club executive director Lindsey Westburg said in a statement.

The building has been under construction for nearly a year to completely renovate and add on a new lobby and extra classroom space.

Westburg encourages the public to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday.
