Monterey HS Robotics Program Receives Monsanto Grant
The Monterey High School FIRST Robotics team received a one-time $5,000 grant from the Monsanto Fund, a philanthropic arm of Bayer. This grant allows Monterey to continue its educational programs and competitions with FIRST Robotics. FIRST gives students a feel for real-world engineering by allowing them to compete in teams building, designing and programming their own robots to perform pre-assigned tasks.
The Monsanto Fund invests in future scientists and engineers through its intentional support of programs that improve STEM education. In the past five years, the Monsanto Fund has contributed more than $40 million to STEM outreach efforts.
