DALEVILLE, Ala. (WTVY) - Children in the Wiregrass now have a new program to take advantage of. Robotics, cyber security, and STEM programs are making their way to the Billy Adkins Community Center in Daleville.

The program will be fully funded, only costing those wanting to get involved a fee of $10s.

Rec Center officials hope the programs give children more options for extracurricular activities.

“Everybody doesn’t play sports. So we are geared towards the kids that don’t play sports, that will give them something to do besides sit in their home or either just out and about,” said Director Tinia Cannon. “So now they’ve got robotics. They’ve got cyber security. We’ve got more stuff that we are bringing to the city of Daleville, but we’re just trying to break ground right now just a little bit at a time.”

The program kicks off in January.
