North Robotics Club Receives Corporate Grant

Posted by Community Relations Department on 12/19/2012

The North Robotics Club is ready to roll into its spring competition season with a bonus—the needed funding necessary to compete.  Boeing awarded a $5000 FIRST@Boeing grant to the team, the first year that North has been awarded a grant from a corporate sponsor.  In addition to being awarded the funds, Boeing provides the team mentorship through one or more of their employees who become an official part of the team.  The robotics club has also raised over $5,000 in Arizona Education Tax Credit donations so far.  Science teacher George Cardenas is the club’s advisor who has spearheaded the fundraising efforts.  The club has experienced incredible growth in interest and membership.
