Robotics is Building Momentum in RPS205

April 17, 2016 | by : Superior Joining Technologies, Inc.

In this article, Mary Kaull shares the importance and passion behind the local robotics leagues in the Rockford area—specifically, FIRST Robotics. Superior Joining Technologies, Inc. (SJTI) Owner Teresa Beach-Shelow and Vice President and husband Thom Shelow are strong supporters in the RPS205 robotics teams, offering a $3000 sponsorship alongside over 230 hours of volunteer hours logged with the FIRST Lego League at Eisenhower Middle School.

Beach-Shelow says robotics is important for students because it provides exposure to hands-on projects, programming skills, and provides a medium to apply math and science concepts outside of textbooks.

"This sets students up for scholarships, and job and career advancement opportunities." - Teresa Beach-Shelow
