Holy Family Catholic High School Receives Grant from DuPont Pioneer
Victoria, MN – December 6, 2017– Holy Family Catholic High School is pleased to announce that DuPont Pioneer donated $2000 to the Holy Family robotics program as part of the DuPont Pioneer sponsorship program.
Pioneer makes contributions to community-based organizations on behalf of the business and employees. Consideration for outreach grants is given to communities where Pioneer sales representatives, DuPont Pioneer employees and customers live and work and that support quality-of-life initiatives to create an improved, sustainable lifestyle for people worldwide.
Engineering and Robotics instructor Nick Livermore appreciates the support, “We are grateful DuPont Pioneer recognizes the value in making investments in high school technology programs. We are a small program doing big things. Last year we made our second trip to the FIRST Robotics World Championship. Our small class sizes allow students to have hands-on experience from idea generation to design to execution. DuPont’s grant will help students take their concepts from CAD drawings to working robots.”
The Holy Family robotics program is in its 8th year of competing in the FIRST Robotics Competitions and Tech Challenges. These competitions combine the excitement of sports with knowledge and skills acquired in science and technology courses. Last year’s FRC team was a member of the winning alliance at the FRC 10,000 Lake Regional Qualifier which earned the program a second trip to the world competition.
