Penn STEM Scholarships 2017

The 2016-2017 FIRST robotics competition season was an overwhelming success. In our very accomplished season, we applied for the Gene HAAS Foundation grant and were given $12,000.  With receiving the generous amount, the Penn Robotics team gave five seniors who were pursuing engineering and STEM in college $1,000 each. Team 135 also received scholarship money from an anonymous donor. The donor gave four special seniors $500 each who made an remarkable impact on Team 135 which lead to our amazing accomplishments.

Team 135 would like to congratulate our very victorious winners.
