The Super Hornets Robotics team recently received grant funding to further advance their endeavors in introducing students to science and engineering. Bayer Fund, a philanthropic arm of Bayer, recently awarded a one-time $3,000 grant to the St- Charles-based Super Hornets to support their participation in the FIRST Robotics program.
Super Hornets Robotics is a community team that encompasses St. Charles, St. Louis, and Warren counties and welcomes students 14 to 18 years old from public, private and home schools alike.
“We are grateful for Bayer Fund’s continued support of STEM education and our robotics team in spite of the pandemic,” Kwan Thai, mentor for Super Hornets Robotics, said.
Super Hornets Robotics will use the grant to participate in FIRST Robotics educational programs and competitions. FIRST enables teams of students to compete with others in building, designing and programming their own robots to perform preassigned tasks, giving students a chance to get involved with real-world engineering.
