West Deptford, NJ –
LAMATEK Inc. is proud to sponsor Gloucester County Institute of Technology’s (GCIT) robotics team, FRC Team 3151 Cyberstorm, who are competing in the annual FIRST Robotics Competition. The FIRST Robotics Competition, which kicked off on January 6, is a 6-week long event that teaches high school students innovative thinking, individual initiative and effective teamwork: Three of LAMATEK’s top values.
The West Deptford based company’s contribution to Team Cyberstorm will allow 40 students from GCIT to work together while learning invaluable job and life skills to engineer a large, remote-controlled robot to be entered in the FIRST Robotics Competition games. Donations like LAMATEK’s help cover registration fees for the 2 main events, as well as tools, safety equipment and building materials.
“LAMATEK is proud to support educational opportunities like this that showcase advanced manufacturing to local students,” says Vice President, Laura Basara of the program. “Students like those on GCIT’s robotics team are our future workforce and it is critical for our company to promote the exciting career opportunities in STEM and advanced manufacturing fields.”
