Robotics Team 2020

The Immaculata High School FIRST Robotics team Cold Fusion Team 1279 received a $3,000 Grant from Bayer Fund. Students will use this 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. “The FIRST Robotics program helps provide the necessary skills for young students to become STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) leaders,” said Al Mitchell, President of Bayer Fund. “This program not only inspires innovation but provides life capabilities such as communication and self-confidence. Bayer Fund is proud to provide grants to student teams to encourage their development into future scientists, engineers, and computer programmers.”

Bayer Fund’s sponsorship of FIRST Robotics teams continues the nonprofit’s intentional support of programs that improve STEM education. Over the past five years, Bayer Fund has contributed over $40 million to STEM outreach efforts.
