The Pike County School system began a STEM Academy in 2015 with a group of 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Recently, the students participated in their first ever BEST Robotics competition. I reached out to the foundation in order to help the students with expenses related to this competition including sponsorship and team shirts. In preparation for the event, several Thompson employees visited the school to mentor the students and support their efforts. I enjoyed working with these students and attending the competition with them.
