Grants enable 13 Ontario teams to take part in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)-building robotics programs.
The FCA Foundation, which is the charitable arm of FCA US, recently awarded over $65,000 USD in grants to 13 Ontario robotics teams and programs. The grants will help students offset the costs associated with competing in STEM-building FIRST Robotics Competition programs.
“The long-standing commitment and engagement FCA has with FIRST is embodied by the dedication of our employees who give generously of their time and skills to help mentor students and serve as competition coordinators,” said Lesley Slavitt, Head of Civic Engagement, FCA US and CEO of the FCA Foundation. “It is a continuing privilege to ensure their hard work and steadfast contributions support and further positive outcomes for youth in our communities.”
