Guam - Public high school students can look forward to a new science class option as the Guam Education Board approved a robotics honors course at Wednesday's meeting. According to Department of Education interim superintendent Taling Taitano, the course is currently being piloted at John F. Kennedy High School.

"We're really excited about the robotics program," she said. "JFK's got a great class that's going on. It was piloted at JFK and what the board did today was approve the course so it could be added to all the other high schools."

Taitano says the remaining high schools are looking to see how they can implement the new class at their respective campuses.
