We are excited to announce that we have received a STEM grant from Marathon Petroleum Corporation this year — funding our participation in the 2019 FIRST Robotics Competition this season! We are very thankful to have them as our new partner and have already begun putting this grant to work for the students.
Marathon Petroleum Corporation is a leading energy company and operates the nation’s largest refining system.
Thank you to Marathon Petroleum Corporation for their investment in students from the San Antonio community, enabling engagement in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) learning, experiences, and education.
The Screaming Chickens Robotics program provides hands-on, real-world learning experiences for students from all over the San Antonio area, representing three different public high schools, one public charter school, and home school students as well. With funding support from partners such as Marathon Petroleum Corporation, we are able to open up the exciting FIRST Robotics Competition opportunities to students without a team at their local high school!
