Engineering Program at Middle School
REF committed the proceeds of May 2014's 10th Annual Golf Classic to continue a three-year initiative to fund a pre-engineering program a Pond Road Middle School, which will result in seamless technology education for students in grades 6 through 12.
The R.E.F., in collaboration with the Board of Education's former Partners in Education committee, previously raised $76,721.90 to fund pre-engineering at Robbinsville High School, known as Project Lead the Way. That funding commitment lasted from 2004 to 2009.
This commitment, which will span three years, will require the REF to raise $61,060 to fully fund the middle school program.
"We are very grateful for our strong partnership with the Robbinsville Education Foundation, they are helping us move forward with a very strong program in math, science, and technology through their support and funding for Project Lead the Way. Thanks to their support, the high school FIRST Robotics program is meeting with high levels of success in their competitions, but more importantly the students involved are gaining acceptance to the most competitive colleges, universities, and technical schools."
