Lansingburgh High School Robotics Team Awarded Grant Funding

November 16, 2020

Congratulations to the Lansingburgh High School Robotics Team for receiving $3,500 in grant funding from the Capital District Engineers Week Committee. This will be used to support future Annual Robotics Tournaments (known as “Bots Take Burgh”) and the three Lansingburgh Robotics Student Teams. Our Technology Education Teacher, Adam South, applied for this grant back in February 2020.

The Capital District E-Week focuses on promoting the engineering profession. In support of its goals, E-Week has financially supported organizations and events that have an underlying theme to promote some aspect of engineering to the younger community, such as the Lansingburgh Robotics Program and Teams.

“One of our goals with our technology education programs and the robotics team is to provide information on what engineering is about so Lansingburgh students have the resources to decide whether entering that field is for them,” said Mr. South.
