A group of high school students is working on a project that could make all of our lives easier. The Wausau High School students created a snow-plowing robot for a school project.

The finished prototype works so well that MIT in Boston has given the group a $10,000 grant to make it better. In June, they’ll head out east and show the updated version.

The students say it’s an opportunity of a lifetime and that they can’t wait to see what happens.
