Last weekend, Crest Industries partnered with LSUA Robotics to support students from across the state and host the 2021 Louisiana StateVEX Robotics Tournament. More than 160 middle school, high school, and even elementary students came together to show off the robots they designed, built, coded and reengineered throughout the school year.
Crest Industries is proud to provide funding and support for these programs that bring STEM to life for students and help them develop skills that expand far beyond the technical capabilities of building a robot. Outside of the impressive engineering capabilities, students learn the value of teamwork, communication, problem solving, perseverance and innovation - all skills that align perfectly with our company’s core values and will prepare these students for whatever their futures may hold. Take a look at the video below to hear more.
There's much more going on here than just robotics, and Crest Industries is proud to be a part of that. These programs are a way to build a better future for the students in our area, and we hope to spark a spirit of hard work, innovation and continuous improvement within them. By supporting our local schools and communities, we can leave an impact that will help us all be made for whatever challenges the future may hold.
Congratulations to this year’s winners, and good luck as you move on to the World Championship competition:
