For the second consecutive year, Dun & Bradstreet’s EdAhead® initiative presented a $2,500 donation to Tempe Elementary School District’s STEM/Robotics club. This STEM/Robotics club is a unique after-school program, where approximately forty 8th grade students compete to build and program robots. The club’s goals are to challenge students to solve real world problems, foster creativity, and enhance teamwork.
In total, EdAhead has given $6,560 since 2015 for the growth and development of this program. The donation is the matched amount of contributions Dun & Bradstreet’s Tempe employees made to their 529 EdAhead accounts. The donation will be used to buy and maintain robotics equipment and replace consumable material for the program. This year, the donation will also help the students prepare for their FIRST LEGO League Challenge.
