Tulsa Memorial High School and Engineering Academy has a new wing to work its award-winning robotics magic.  Students showed off some of their contraptions on Thursday as they prepare for another big competition.

The new addition includes a new classroom and state-of-the-art laboratory.  It's a major upgrade from before.

"We had previously been in a small classroom without enough space to be able to build robots and practice with them.  We had to use hallway space, the library and found ourselves all over the school," said Engineering Academy Director Lane Matheson.

A bond package helped remodel Memorial and grow the academy.
