Junior high robotics

I am trying to help start a new robotics team at a junior high in my district. There are three teachers at the school that feel ready to take on the challenge of running the team and I have run a team for several years and am willing to help out to make their program successful. However the principal is not on board with the idea and feels it is a waste of time. Is there any research out there on the benefits of robotics at the junior high level.
