REDDING, Calif. - The Shasta County Sheriff's Office donated a robot to the Shasta High School District Robotics Program.

The robot was purchased for the Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad in 2005 and had been in service for many years. The robot is now too old for their bomb squad to use.

The Sheriff's Office gave the robotics team the gift Monday during a presentation. 

At the end of their presentation, the Bomb Squad presented Mr. Grigsby, who oversees the program, and his students with the robot for the purpose of furthering the students' education and growing their young minds.
